Residency is a photo-text book about being an artist. Its fulcrum is an art residency at the Cité International des Arts in Paris. Pictures and text trace the photographer’s wanderings around Paris, as she attempts to find inspiration for her art. But how do you create new works in a city where such important and beautiful art already exists, and where photography itself was invented? As she explores the city, she also explores the history of the medium, and decides to write a book about art photography and where it is today. She interviews various photographers, who all have different views on the subject, making her job more difficult than she had hoped. Residency takes us backstage to show how an artist really works – or doesn’t work. Release at Fotogalleriet January 12th.
