SF Artist-in-Residence Program

Work alongside our master printers to curate an exhibition of your work

The Artist-In-Residence Program helps support local artists as they develop and realize their photographic projects and ideas.


Participants are invited to hone their printing skills alongside our master printers, utilize the gamut of our lab’s resources, enjoy exclusive discounts and debut their work during a gallery exhibition.

Residents may choose to photograph and develop new work or work on an existing project.

Our previous residents include a wide gamut of photographers – from neophytes to Pulitzer Prize winners.

How to Apply

The Dickerman Prints SF Artist-in-Residence Program is on hiatus for the forseeable future.
