Here are pics of my yearly trip to the photography festival Les Rencontres d’Arles, which was particularly good this year.

You can view posts about previous editions here, here and here.

Standouts this year included a retrospective of the work of Sergio Larrain (very moving and beautiful street photography set in Chile, Bolivia, Peru and Rome mostly, like filmic snapshots of everyday life in the 1950’s and 1960’s), photos by Viviane Sassen (I fell in love with her compositions and colours), an inventive photo narrative by Cristina de Middel set in Zambia, polaroids  and black and white photos of Guy Bourdin‘s early work, and the collages of John Stezaker (which I blogged about here back in 2011).
