SlowAIR:  SlowExposures’ Artist in Residence Program



Elliot Helms House

Elliot Helms House

The two photographers who are chosen for our fourth Artist in Residence program will spend a week at the Elliot Helms House in Pike County at a mutually agreed-on date. There are two suites with private bath with work areas and beautiful views. Lodging, some meals, and an opportunity to exhibit your work at SlowExposures 2018 will be provided. It’s a chance to pursue projects and take risks free from everyday demands. 

The SlowAIR purpose is to encourage the creative growth of photographers who are interested in exploring an aspect of the contemporary rural South through their work. Since its inception 16 years ago, SlowExposures has been invested in supporting the use of this medium to illuminate, challenge, and record the story of this region. The award of a residency will be made on the basis of the submitted work by the application deadline of Thursday, March 24, 2018. The notification of award will be made by April 15 with the residency completed by August 1, 2018.

Responsibilities of Artists:  We ask that each artist donate a print of an image of their choice–this will be displayed and auctioned off at SlowExposures 2018.  The application fee for SlowAIR is $25.  There is no fee for those photographers who entered SlowExposures 2017.  Residents are responsible for transportation and supplies as well as meals that are not scheduled with SlowExposures members.
