Who wouldn’t want a residency that provides a furnished apartment, a $4000 stipend, a private digital studio and darkroom, and 24-hour access to the facility? Yeah, that’s what I thought.
I never really thought about doing a residency, but with amenities like those how could I not consider it! Artists that participate in the Light Work residency are provided an apartment in Syracuse, New York for one month and given access to the Light Work studios and labs while working on personal photography projects. The studios and labs have computers with Epson printers, like the ones in the Mac Lab at Arizona State University. The computers in the lab also come with Photoshop, Illustrator, iLife, Dreamweaver, InDesign, and other programs to allow artists to work in a range of areas. I have never been to New York, but I’ve always wanted to, so that alone is making me drool over this residency!
