Orms Cape Town School of Photography will be hosting an Artist/Photographer in Residence programme. Our residency programme is dedicated to those who have existing bodies of work or to those who have well-established projects and are in need of access to the necessary equipment and input to further execute these projects and/or bring them into realization.
The residency itself will run for the duration of a month starting Monday, 11 June, for four weeks to Friday, 6 July. During this time, the artist/photographer in question will have access to a studio with adequate wall space for the editing and sequencing of their work, the use of our studio lighting equipment, a dedicated camera for the duration of their residency, the use of our darkroom if so required, the use of a dedicated Mac in our Mac-lab and a stipend of 15 working prints (6×9”) per weekday. The residency will culminate in a small show, which will be followed by a presentation by the artist/photographer in question on their work and their process.
11 June – 6 July 2018
The artist/photographer in residence will own the intellectual property and physical work created at Orms Cape Town School of Photography during their residency.
