Talking about smoking photographs at Redeye’s Hothouse

Redeye, if you didn’t know, is one of the UK’s leading photography organisations – or networks as it likes to say.

It’s a national outfit but it just happens to be based in Manchester.

For the last two years I was lucky enough to work under one of its larger projects, Lightbox. For this project I attended a week-long photography seminar and exhibited Women and Alcohol at Look2011: Liverpool International Photography Festival. Women and Alcohol also made its way to London for the Photomonth 2011: East London Photography festival.

And in March 2012 I presented my 2007 project, Flashes to Ashes, at Hothouse.

The event was a series of projects talks by photographers from various disciplines. There was a lot of people in the audience. They asked me a lot of questions about smoking.

This work will be exhibited properly for the first time this summer to coincide with the fifth anniversary of the ban on smoking in public places in England.
