Project scholarship for young artists and photographers
August and September

The black and white photo laboratory offers young photographers* and students* a summer grant from August to September.
The scholarship includes the free use of the laboratory rooms for a period of two months. Afterwards, the resulting works can be presented in the exhibition rooms at Nails Projectrooms, Birkenstraße 61 40233 Düsseldorf. 

In the digital age, analogue materiality has a significant content. The black-and-white photo laboratory was founded in 1999 by Erika Vogel programmatically with a black-and-white perspective and has been continued in this spirit by Thomas Ochs since 2018. Both are connected with each other in spirit not only through their eye for the analogue, but also with their passion for materiality. The processes of developing and enlarging have a special feel to them. This requires a sensitivity for manual work and a trained eye. During the fellowship, these skills will be trained and works will be created, from the film reel to the exhibition presentation.

Please apply with a significant portfolio (CV, letter of motivation, a concrete project idea and former artworks) that could be realizable in the laboratory and later exhibited in Düsseldorf.
