The International Photography Festival known as "Les Rencontres d'Arles" was created by Lucien Clergue , Jean-Maurice Rouquette and Michel Tournier in 1968. More than forty years later this festival is definitively, the most important event around photography in the whole world.

Usually organized around more than 50 events installed in various exceptional patrimonial places of Arles, Les Rencontres d’Arles (in English the Meetings of Arles) , each summer in July, intend to contribute to transmit the world photographic inheritance and also want to be the crucible of contemporary creation by the discovery of young talented photographers.

Thanks to a demanding programming directed by talented François Hebel and a challenging public, the Rencontres d’Arles explore the current stakes of photography and attest capacity of this medium and importance of the figure of the photographer, witness of the world which surrounds it.

How does it work?
