Debates, symposiums, seminars

During the opening week of the Rencontres d’Arles, numerous events related to photography (symposium, debates, exhibition tours, book signing, workshops, discussions…) are organized. Participating photographers and other professionals talk about their work or about questions raised by the images on display.

In recent years the themes included whether a black-and-white aesthetic is still conceivable in photography (2013); Intensities of the photography (2012); The impact of social networks on creativity and information (2011); “Change, a central concept in today’s photography” (2009); “The Photography Commission – Freedom or Constraint ?” (2008).
