I just came back from the opening week of the infamous and majestic Recontres de la photographie in Arles. Exhibitions take over venues all over the otherwise quaint town of Arles, famous for Vincent Van Gogh’s connection to the place, and the light – the light is incredible!
Photographers, curators, press and writers descend upon Arles to attend exhibitions, parties, dinners and awards ceremonies for this special week each year.
I will be writing a few responses to some of the work I saw there this year over a series of posts so keep your eyes peeled for some inspiring photography coming your way!

Exhibitions run from 4th July to 25th September. If you find yourself in the area, or if you are a photo geek like me, then make your way down and be inspired!
More info to follow soon. Stay tuned!
