July 4 — September 17
The hallmark of the Rencontres d’Arles 2006 will be Raymond Depardon’s appetite and generosity. In his journey through the second half of the 20th century, this unanimously celebrated figure has ceaselessly developed his use of photography. Equally renowned for photographs and films, he has also written many books, which for him are a creative pinnacle. Despite his teeming workload, Raymond Depardon agreed to program a large part of the 2006 festival, setting aside his own work in order to showcase that of others.
