ARLES 2015


What is a festival? Neither a museum nor a trade show; the festival must escape this neither-nor trap and constantly reaffirm its freedom.The institutional recognition of photography as an art - to which the Rencontres d'Arles has greatly contributed - casts museums as the guardians of the temple. Trade shows, meanwhile, provide an overview of the state of the market - which is too often taken as the state of the art.

Arles Books 2015

In 2015, the Rencontres d’Arles are launching a new satellite event. Arles Books will take place in over 1,000m2 dedicated to the book, in every shape and form.
