Les Recontres de la Photographie, Arles

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!

I’ll start by whetting your appetite here with some imagery from selected artists…
