The Robert Gardner Fellowship in Photography funds an “established practitioner of the photographic arts to create and subsequently publish through the Peabody Museum a major book of photographs on the human condition anywhere in the world.”
The same body of work may also be featured in a photographic exhibition at the Peabody Museum.
The Fellowship committee invites nominations from a rotating panel of curators, educators, and independent photo professionals from around the world; nominees are reviewed and selected by a committee of three. The Fellowship provides a generous stipend and is unique in its dedication to funding professional documentary photography.
