The places of meetings
This project is about ‘The international meetings of photography’ in Arles from 2018 onwards.
It’s the town itself, its buildings, its open spaces, its hidden corners, its shadows and, eventually, the southern France summer light...
It is about the sites where photographies are exposed, dwelling silently with time.
It’s the darkness of the rooms, the whiteness of corridors, the artificial lights. The rust and the dust. Stairways, windows on the street and whatever people left idly around. It’s about peeling walls and scraped off wooden doors. Cracks, leaks, holes and gaps.
It’s about the perpetual work of time on matter. History and its sudden omission.
It’s the ephemeral passage of pictures in town, discreet and respectful of the sacred popularity of the place.
