Each year, BAXTER ST at CCNY invites emerging photographers living in New York City to apply for the BAXTER ST at CCNY Workspace Residency Program. This residency offers local photographers much-needed workspace in New York City as well as access to the BAXTER ST at CCNY community and programs.


– Workspace: Workspace Residents receive three months of free access to the B&W and Color darkrooms, Digital Lab and Shooting Studio at the International Center of Photography, as well as the BAXTER ST at CCNY facilities.
– Programs: Residents receive free admission to all 2016 BAXTER ST at CCNY events.
– Stipend: Residents receive a monthly stipend of $1,000 for three months and donated material support during their residency.
– Exhibition Opportunity: Each resident receives a solo exhibition at BAXTER ST at CCNY after his or her term of residency with additional funding to produce and mount their show pending availability.


All artists currently residing in New York City who are working in photography or lens-based art are eligible to apply. Please note that living accommodations are not provided. Students must have completed their studies on or before January 1, 2017 in order to be eligible to apply. A jury of photography professionals will consider all eligible applications.


Each autumn, BAXTER ST at CCNY announces a Call for Entry for the next year’s Workspace Residents. The application for the 2016 Workspace Residency has passed. The application for 2017 Workspace Residents will open in the fall of 2016.

2016 Residents

A four-person jury selects four artists for the residency program. Once again, BAXTER ST at CCNY received many excellent submissions from NYC-based artists. The jury, which included Brooklyn Museum curator Rujeko Hockley, artist Sara VanDerBeek, artist and Director of General Studies at ICP Marina Berio, as well as artist/publisher and Board Co-President at BAXTER ST Michi Jigarjian, was very impressed by the overall quality of the submissions, and the final choice was very difficult.

BAXTER ST at CCNY would like to thank all the artists who entered this year, and we congratulate the four recipients of the 2016 BAXTER ST at CCNY Workspace Residency Program: Lisa Fairstein, Nona Faustine, Katherine Hubbard, and Marco Scozzaro.
