VISIBLE OR INVISIBLE, A SUMMER REVEALED

July 4 — September 25

Saying that this will be a summer of revelations is almost stating the obvious. How can we be made to see what is staring us in the face but takes so long to appear, as if the revelation could only be a forced birth? Artists, especially photographers, are there to remind us what we do not want to see or hear. Every summer, the Rencontres d'Arles shakes up the way we look at things from one continent to another. They remind us of our absolute need to exist.
