PHOTOGRAPHERS: Light Work Photography Residency
Every year Light work invites between twelve and fifteen artists to come to Syracuse, NY to devote one month to creative projects. Over three hundred artists have participated in the AIR program, many of whom have since achieved international acclaim. The residency includes a $4,000 stipend, a furnished artist apartment, 24-hour access to our state-of-the-art darkroom and digital facilities, and generous staff support. Work by each Artist-in-Residence is published in a special edition of Contact Sheet: The Light Work Annual. Contact Sheet is a beautiful publication that is sent to over four thousand art lovers, museums, galleries, and libraries in over thirty-two countries. Applications are accepted throughout the year. http://www.lightwork.org/residency/resinfo.html While there is no formal deadline, we complete reviews of portfolios every two or three months. The next review process is scheduled to take place in April 2009. We are currently scheduling a couple residencies for 2009; most of the 2009 residencies have already been announced on our blog.
