The Pajama Factory Artist-In-Residence (AIR) program provides artists with an expansive, flexible environment in which to work, and a platform for the exchange of creative ideas between participants and the community.


Are you looking for a chance to work in alternative process photography? We are now offering short-term residencies, two to four weeks, throughout the year. This is a new offering in addition to the Summer AIR Program. You may select a time period that works for you and have 24/7 access to a well equipped darkroom to pursue silver gelatin, wet plate collodion, Van Dyke brown, cyanotype and bromoil photography. Other processes are welcome. Email residents.pjf@gmail.com for full details.
