Rencontres d’Arles

First, some impressions. Arles is amazing for people watching. One could find movie characters not dissimilar to Don Corleone surrounded by the penetrating yellows of Cafe Van Gogh, the famous terrace depicted by the master painter himself. After meeting and discussing photography with one of the Magnum members I decided to focus more on people and cinematic images that could possibly be movie stills. This made me pause and think if my photographic practice is one big movie composed of individual frames. Is it a movie about a life itself? About photography? About light and  joie de vivre?
