Between 2001-2014 the Foundation has awarded a stipend to a Swedish photographer, enabling him or her to work on a project in an international environment by spending time at Axel Munthe's Villa San Michele on the Italian island of Capri.

2014 was the last time the stipend was awarded.





Katerina Mistal - recipient of the 2014 San Michele photography stipend

Katerina Mistal from Stockholm has been awarded the Hasselblad Foundation’s artist-in-residency stipend at Axel Munthe’s Villa San Michele on the Italian island of Capri. The stipend is worth SEK 20,000 and the Foundation will also pay rental costs for the villa.

Katerina Mistal will edit a photography book on her multiyear project Kustlinjer. It concerns the history, mobility and evolution of relationships in European borderlands and the children who live in Europe’s utmost frontiers. Katerina Mistal photographs children directly along the coastline, which in a concrete and symbolic way marks  Europe’s geographical and political boundaries. The stipend gives the recipient time at San Michele to concentrate on the book’s preparation, texts and pictorial material.

The purpose of the San Michele stipend is to offer a residency overseas for work on a photographic project while also providing an opportunity to build international contacts within photography and other artistic disciplines.

The residency will take place in September 2014.
