Photographer-in-Residence: Environmental Services Dept.


The City of San Jose’s Office of Cultural Affairs and Environmental Services Department (ESD) are seeking a “photographer-in-residence” to document the people, places and operations involved in the daily workings of the Environmental Services Department Storm Water, Water Pollution Control and Water Recycling Services.  The photographer-in-residence will spend approximately 20 hours per week documenting the Department’s work over a six month period and will be provided with a work station at the Water Pollution Control Plant, which will act as home base for this project.  At the end of the residency period, the photographer will create a proposal for presenting the photographs (e.g. as a suite of framed photographs, web pages, a publication, etc.) and a separate production contract will be negotiated.
