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.

AUTUMN RESIDENCY 2022
Our autumn residency open call was part of the the 10th-anniversary edition of the PHmuseum Photography Grant. The awarded photographer is Johann Husser.
Johann Husser (b. 1990) was born in Kemerovo, Siberia. He spent the first four years of his life there before his family emigrated to Germany. Growing up in North Rhine-Westphalia, Johann Husser moved to Dortmund to study Spatial Planning and switched to the Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts, where he completed his BA in Photography in 2017.
In 2022 he finished his Post-Graduate Diploma in Media Arts at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne with the project proposal for a city and currently lives in Berlin.
A predominant focus of my artistic/photographic practice lies on the subject of space in its broadest sense. Drawing inspiration from the studies in spatial planning I incorporate site specific and conceptual walks in thinking about urban space and the relation of architecture/build environment and the subject. Being raised with a post-soviet migratory background, memory space and its associative nature is another important element within my artistic practice and the topics of theoretical research.
‘For the Landskrona residency I would like to further explore the photographic notion of loose narrative and associative structures in relation to memory. A place that I do not have a particular connection with, other than knowing of the fotofestival, and that I have never been to is an interesting starting point to think about memory. Especially of the memory of my birth place that my parents left when I was around the age of four. How can I incorporate a place I do not know in this practice and thinking would be something I would focus on during the residency.‘
