Full Circle Fine Art’s Analog Photography Residency allows artists unlimited access to both color and black and white darkrooms. The residency ranges from one to three months based on project proposals and results in a solo exhibition of the resident’s work from their tenure.
We accept proposals on a rolling basis with a typical residency set for fall and spring.
Proposals should include: Artist statement, CV, 5-10 images of current work from the last 2 years (jpegs / 72ppi / 1500px wide), project description, and a short statement explaining how you intend to use the darkroom to either further expand upon an existing project or to create a new one.
If you are interested in applying or have any questions, please email all appropriate documents to with the subject line of “Analog Photography Residency.”
We review the proposals at the end of September and the end of February.

Kei Ito is a conceptual photographer working primarily with camera-less image and installation art. Ito earned his MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art in 2016 and is currently an artist in resident at Creative Alliance. The notable institutes which collected his work include the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago and Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach.
Ito’s work addresses issues of deep loss and intergenerational connection as he explores the materiality and experimental processes of photography. His work deals with the trauma and legacy passed down from his late grandfather, a survivor of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, in relation to current threats of nuclear disaster. Through his ritualistic image-making, the audience sees how he grapples with his family’s historical connection to nuclear weapons and power. Thus, Ito’s art serves as an intermediary, a memento of his grandfather, and his own experience in today’s nuclear climate.
