2006 Photo Festival:
Politics and Society
The International photography festival in Arles, France,
now in its 37th year, is an abundant visual and social celebration. It
brings together hundreds of photographers, publishers, curators and galleries,
and thousands of photography lovers for a summer-long festival. The first
week, July 4-10, is the most intense, with the opening of 67 exhibits,
special live programs, projection screenings, book-signings, and award
ceremonies. Masterclass workshops are conducted all summer long, and the
exhibitions are open throughout the summer until September 17.
The photos at right offer a sampling of the diverse contemporary
work on display, as well as the "politics and society" photography
chosen by Depardon.
