Publisher's Description
'Rich and varied, the Rencontres 2005 have been put together with the generous, enthusiastic help of photography experts from different countries. The range is intentionally wide, but the programme is given unity and direction by themes like the Awards, Brazil, Violence, Political Commitment and the Portrait. Each photographer is shown individually and works closely with the Rencontres to optimise his exhibition in the Arles setting.

Once again the emphasis is on bringing the public lesser-known photographers, challenging trends and encouraging exchanges of points of view. In major cities the museums focus on photographers already notorious: each summer in Arles we offer the chance to freshen up one’s way of seeing, and a survey conducted in 2004 confirms that visitors really appreciate this originality and diversity. The Rencontres are the work of a small, cohesive team constantly on the lookout for fresh inputs. Team members are delighted when a photographer with an initially unpronounceable name becomes a household word in the course of the Festival. '

-François Hébel, Director Rencontres d’Arles.
