Photographer Stacy Kranitz will be offering two residencies at her home in rural Tennessee (USA) in 2019. The residency is designed to offer time and space for women, transgender, or non-binary photographers with 5+ years of professional experience, specifically for artists in need of pre-production and post production time. It is ideal for grant writing, research, video editing and rest, relaxation and decompression after intense travel. Residency guests will have their own bedroom, bathroom, porch and an additional room that can be used as an office or studio. Other available resources include an Epson color printer, large format scanner, a b/w laser printer, strobe lighting, desktop speakers, washer and dryer, full kitchen and Wi-Fi.
The residency is located in rural Tennessee between Knoxville and Nashville about 8 miles from Smithville, Tennessee. Because of the rural location, residents will need their own transportation to be able to access basic amenities. If you identify as LGBTQIA+, a unique support network is available during the residency because of close proximity to several historically radical queer communes.
Stacy spends about half of her time on the road. Artists can choose to either spend their residencies alone or overlap with her while she’s home. For emerging photographers, mentorship from Stacy is optional and would include sharing successful grant applications, showing how she runs her business and develops projects, as well as guidance about how to further develop long form projects.
— Residencies will be 2-4 weeks long in 2019, at a time mutually convenient for Stacy and each photographer.
— A car will be necessary to get around.
— There are no fees associated with the residency. Individual residents will need to provide their own food beyond what is available in the kitchen pantry. A small stipend will be provided (amount TBD) to cover overhead expenses, and potentially to help with transport to Tennessee.
— There is no requirement to produce work or come away from the residency with a completed project.
APPLICATIONS DUE: JANUARY 15, 2019
