Professional Basics Application Example

Professional Basics Grant


Describe how this grant will be utilized and the benefit it will have on your creative practice. Be Specific.
The project will allow me to fully process my own work from home giving me full creative control over the images that I produce. With the money saved from processing at home I will have more funds allowed for creation of work. Also being able to process film from camera to print is extremely important to the hands-on nature of my work. Having full control in the darkroom will allow for higher quality photos as well as larger scans utilizing a film scanner resulting in finer prints.
