Rencontres d’Arles

Continuing my Rencontres d’Arles photo series featuring art directors, gallery owners, photographers, collectors and members of the public enjoying the sunshine in Arles.

Founded in 1970 by the Arles photographer Lucien Clergue, writer Michel Tournier and historian Jean-Maurice Rouquette, the Rencontres d’Arles Festival became the longest-running and most famous photography festival in the world. Exhibiting the work of Edward Weston, Eugene Atget, Paul Strand, Lucien Clergue, André Kertész, Robert Doisneau, Ernst Haas, Willy Ronis, Arnold Newman, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Alexey Brodovich, Sebastiao Salgado, Martin Parr, Guy Bourdin, Richard Avedon, Cecil Beaton, Walker Evans, Edward Steichen, Josef Koudelka, the festival has become the pinnacle of photographic recognition and the space to explore the most recent and iconic photography from all over the world.
