Twice a year Landskrona Foto Residency welcomes an early to mid-career photographer or artist working with photography and/or lens-based media, who wishes to further and challenge their practice, to Landskrona, to engage in a project related to the city.
Our residency program is an opportunity for a non-Swedish photographer or artist working with photography and/or lens based media to have time and space away from their usual environment and obligations. The residency takes place for 6 weeks 2021. 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 an office space with Landskrona Foto crew. Landskrona Foto connects the photographer in residency with regional-based photographers, artists and other art professionals through meetings, mentoring, exhibition openings and other networking opportunities.

SPRING RESIDENCY 2022
Sharon Castellanos is our current residency photographer. She is a photographer based in Cusco, Peru. She has worked 4+ years as a press photographer for a national coverage newspaper in Lima city and as a correspondent in Cusco and Puno regions (South of Peru).
For the past years, she has been working with video and other digital tools such as animation and web platforms for storytelling as tools to integrate with photography.
She has designed and produced collective web projects such as “Larutadelretorno.com” and “Sunqururuymantapacha.com” and some of her projects have been supported by the Pulitzer Center and the National Geographic Society.
“Part of my photographic practice has been focused on the relationship between the human being and the environment and the socio-cultural idiosyncrasy as a background. In that sense, for the residency, I would be interested in exploring a theme in the same lines.”
