Photographer in Residence

The 1906 Group, a privately-held company in the real estate, construction and finance industry, seeks our third Photographer-in-Residence.  The 1906 Group Photographer-in-Residence will spend one year visiting our jobsites, offices and manufacturing facilities across the United States, photographing the “faces of construction”.  We are particularly interested in capturing the emotion, character, and strength of the men and women who build our projects and help turn ideas into reality. As both individuals and in groups, these men and women are responsible for the heroic efforts required to build our nation’s infrastructure. Their work deserves to be documented. The Photographer-in-Residence will receive a $60,000 annual stipend plus travel and expenses. At the conclusion of the residency, 1906 Group will host a show to exhibit the artist’s work.
