WINNER SPRING RESIDENCY 2020
The recipient of Landskrona Foto Spring Residency 2020 is Marta Bogdanska.
The decision has been taken by the jury based on the artist’s project proposal titled “The love that dare not speak its name”. Following the footsteps of Swedish writer Selma Lagerlöf, the first woman to receive a Nobel Prize for literature. The project will investigate which traces of her life, intimate thoughts and feelings can be found in Landskrona today. By weaving several elements together, the project will actualize Selma’s legacy through an exchange with the local LGBTQ+ community.
The residency takes place for 6 weeks. The residency photographer receives a grant of 15000 SEK (approx. 1500 EUR), travel expenses to and from the home country (economy only), accommodation in Landskrona, and an office space with the Landskrona Foto crew.
