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.


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, a office space with the Landskrona Foto crew.

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.

In May our spring residency holder, Vivek Mariappan från the city of Chennai in India,
arrives in Landskrona. His work constantly revolves within the realms of rural
landscapes where he searches for overlooked stories.

In the series Rooster Wars he documents the roosters which are trained to fight and the
men who train them. The indian government have now officially banned the Rooster duels
but Sevakattu (Rooster duels) is an ongoing activity throughout the state of Tamil Nadu.

During his residency Vivek wants to explore similar stories and spaces and the people
connected to them:

” I would like to create a map of the town of Landskrona. By identifying singular spaces,
I believe I could put the bigger picture of the town in a perspective that’s never been seen before. I’m also interested in connecting and collaborating with Swedish artists who are
reinventing the idea of personal space with radical designs of architecture.”
