AIR Presentation: Photographer Patricia Bender
Patricia A. Bender (May 29-June 11) is a photographer living in Somerset, New Jersey. Using an 8×10 Deardorff view camera, Bender’s residency will focus on photographing notable trees in the Leelanau Peninsula, and creating negatives developed using a salted paper process. She precedes her residency by compiling a list of selected trees based on resources provided by the National Big Tree Registry, Michigan State University and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. Bender maintains a full-time studio practice.
The artist residencies allow practicing artists to focus on a specific creative proposal. As part of the Artist-in-Residence program, each resident makes a public presentation about their stay and the work they undertook on the final Thursday of their residency.
