Twice a year Landskrona Foto residency welcomes early to mid-career photographer or artist working with photography and/or lens based media, who wish to further and challenge their practice, to Landskrona to engage in a project related to the city. It’s an opportunity to have time and space away from your usual environment and obligations. Right now the submissions for our spring residency is open. This time however only for a photographer from India. But the autumn residency will be open for photographers from all over the world and that submission will open during the spring.
Landskrona Foto has in recent years been established as one of the Nordic regions’ eminent photography initiatives and includes the renowned Landskrona Foto Festival. Fröfabriken Creative Space is a collaborative platform for art, production and meeting. It is situated in a former seed plant in Landskrona. 1600 sqm have been remodelled to accommodate artists’ and photographers’ specific workspace needs. Today there are 13 ateliers, one photo studio and a multi-use hall for meetings, events, and group activities. The artists, photographers and designers in Fröfabriken welcome participants of the residency program into a stimulating environment with access to local and global networks within the artistic and photographic industries.

2018: Manuel Castillo Jimenez and Anastasia Mityukova
Every year Landskrona Foto presents an exhibition with a view on another country’s photography. In the summer of 2019 this will be India. Because of this, we would love to invite a photographer or artists from India as our spring residency photographer. Photographers or artists working with photography and/or lens based media from India who are looking for new stimulating working environments are encouraged to apply.
The residency takes place for 6 weeks, mid April until end of May. The residency photographer receives a grant of 15000 SEK (approx. 1500 EUR), travel expenses to and from the home country (economy only), an apartment in Landskrona, and a private studio at Fröfabriken Creative Space.
Landskrona Foto connects the photographer in residency with regional-based photographers, artist and other art professionals through meetings, mentoring, exhibition openings and other networking opportunities.
