The two photographers who are chosen for our sixth Artist in Residence program will spend a week before August 1, 2020 at the Elliot Helms House in Pike County at a mutually agreed-on date. There are two suites with private baths with work areas and beautiful views. Lodging, some meals, and an opportunity to exhibit your work at SlowExposures 2020 will be provided. It's a chance to pursue projects and take risks--free from everyday demands.
SlowAIR's purpose is to encourage the creative growth of photographers who are interested in exploring an aspect of the contemporary rural South through their work. Since its inception 18 years ago, SlowExposures has been invested in supporting the use of this medium to illuminate, challenge, and record the story of this region. The award of a residency will be made on the basis of the submitted work and a short description of your project by the application deadline (Midnight, March 15,2020). Notification of award will be made by March 22 with the residency to be completed by August 1, 2020.
Responsibilities of Artists: We ask that each photographer donate a print of an image of their choice--these will be displayed and auctioned off at the SlowExposures Print Auction. The application fee for SlowAIR is $25.00. There is no fee for those photographers who entered SlowExposures last year. Residents are responsible for transportation and supplies as well as meals which are not scheduled with SlowExposures members.
