PRIX DE LA PHOTO MADAME FIGARO ARLES 2022

This is an award for women photographers on the Rencontres d’Arles program.

JAMES BARNOR

At 93, James Barnor continues to inspire generations of artists and enthrall his audience. Behind each of his photographs lies a story rooted in a 40-year geographical and historical journey from Ghana to the United Kingdom. He shares a selection of them during an evening at the Théâtre Antique.

THE LOUIS ROEDERER DISCOVERY AWARD

The Rencontres d’Arles connects the Louis Roederer Discovery Award with galleries, art centers, associations, independent venues, and institutions. This year’s guest curator is Taous Dahmani. 
Her selection is not focused on a particular theme or sole genre, but on the photographers’ attitudes toward image creation, taking a “pre‑photographic” viewpoint on what drives or gives rise to a project. Here, all the artists start out from the intimate.
With support from the Louis Roederer Foundation and Polka.

SALLY MANN / PRIX PICTET
Sally Mann is the winner of the ninth Prix Pictet, whose theme this year is fire, for her Blackwater series. She traveled around the Great Dismal Swamp in the United States, a place teeming with dense vegetation, snakes, insects, and predators. Many runaway slaves sought refuge there on the road to freedom. She photographed a landscape consumed by flames, which seems to echo the resurgence of racial tensions. More broadly, Blackwater allowed the artist to explore her practice of landscape photography.

LIVE MAGAZINE
Live Magazine is a crazy idea, a unique, ephemeral show. That is undoubtedly the key to its success. By inventing a living newspaper and putting photographers, journalists, and artists up on stage, Live Magazine restores all the power of true stories and their ability to transmit emotion and entrance an audience. In images, sounds, and their own words, they take the stage of the Théâtre Antique to tell stories about an unforgettable encounter, a consuming passion, or an exclusive investigation. The stories are 100% unprecedented, 99% true.

PHOTO SLAM,
A NEW GENERATION

→ Free admission from Midnight onwards

To celebrate the fortieth anniversary of the École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie (ENSP), the Rencontres d’Arles offers an unprecedented photography show reflecting the diversity of students from the school with a performance by around ten young graduates. 

In this frame, a part of the show focuses on Ukraine’s contemporary photography scene with young artists talking about their commitments and challenges since Russia invaded their country.
