“Artist-in-Residence (AiR) programs are many and varied. A useful overview of the thousands of artists’ residences worldwide is available at portals like Transartists.org, Resartis.org, or Artistcommunities.org, yet not all offers are registered there – probably so as to avoid being inundated with inquiries. After all, sojourns in inspiring foreign surroundings are more popular than ever, especially among young artists. Often the host institution assumes the living costs and frequently the artist has an exhibition at the end of his or her stay. We have studied 37 Artist-in-Residence offers specially for photographers, focusing not just on the attractiveness of the place and the reputation of the institution, but also on the terms and conditions for both the invited artists and the local community. Not included are studio providers who expect applicants to pay the respective expenses themselves. This selection is a first step towards a qualified overview of photography AiR programs; first-hand reports on and references to other offers are very welcome.” (Intro, European Photography 89, Spring/Summer 2011)
