The Rencontres d’Arles (formerly known as the Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie d’Arles) is a summer photography festival celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2019.
The Rencontres d’Arles’ program of exhibition, almost exclusively consisting of new work, has earned a world-wide reputation. In 2018, the festival welcomed 140,000 visitors.
Every summer since 1970, over the course of more than sixty exhibitions at various of the city’s exceptional heritage sites, the Rencontres d’Arles has been a major influence in disseminating the best of world photography. It sees itself as the melting pot of contemporary creation.
During two sessions of Portfolio Review, NOOR Managing Director Clement Saccomani met with many young talents and aspiring photographers, many experimenting at the cutting edge of photographic developments, including new technical processes and original approaches to the photographed subject and plastic form.
Those sessions were a great opportunity to share more about the FotoInMotion project, and raising awareness about new techniques; able to offer to every kind of public a different concept of what a photography exhibition can be and to connect people meaningfully with the image.
During The Rencontres d’Arles, Saccomani also met different leading actors of the photographic industry, from acclaimed photographers to digital customers and clients.
Coming from all around the world, photographers and visual image makers are in need of visual editing and processing tools that could support their creativity, facilitate their tasks and help them reach a larger audience, especially on mobile devices.
