It has already become a tradition for me to make some images exploring the photographic life of Arles during the Rencontres photo festival. I will be returning to this idea in several future posts. Sincerely hoping that the images will speak louder than words. What attracts me in these scenes is the immediacy of life, captured during the festival. Animated discussions, portfolio reviews and masterclasses all make wonderful subjects that on could be lucky to capture if one looks hard enough.
