Rencontres d’Arles 2017


First trip to Arles done, for the Rencontres de la Photographie ! Hopefully, it will not be the last. That’s probably another step taken on the long road of art. In case you do not know the festival, feel free to check :

A lot of these exhibitions were enriching, interesting or impressive in many ways. The ones I would personally recommend as must-see are :

Michael Wolf / Life in Cities (chapelle des Frères Prêcheurs)
Exhibition curator: Wim van Sinderen.

Gideon Mendel / Drowning world (Ground control)
Exhibition curator: Mark Sealy.

66 Iranians photographers / Iran : year 38 (église Sainte-Anne)
