Helen Levitt - New York 40's - Les rencontres d'Arles 2019
Lovers of photography, don't miss “Les Rencontres d’Arles 2019”! (Until September 22th). 2019 marks the 50th annual photography festival of Arles, a town listed as a World Heritage Site.
Château La Roque, a prestigious guest house in Provence, offers peace and quiet in an idyllic setting with its shaded gardens, swimming pool at the foot of the cliff and superb views. You are only 1 hour from Arles to fully enjoy the Rencontres de la Photographie.
In 50 years, theRencontres d'Arles have made photography an art in its own right. For the 50th anniversary of the festival, from July 1st to September 22nd, 50 exhibitions are organized and more than 100 photographers from all over the world are honored. All the artistic proposals are presented in Arles, from the most classical to the most conceptual. We particularly liked Helen Levitt and "Unretouched women" with Eve Arnold, Abigail Heyman and Susan Meiselas but also Datazone by Philippe Chancel and Photo/brut (Bruno Decharme's collection).
