Every summer since 1970, over the course of more than forty exhibitions at various of the city's exceptional heritage sites, the Rencontres d'Arles has been a major influence in dissiminating the best of world photography and playing the role of a springboard for photographic and contemporary creative talents.
In 2016, the festival welcomed more than 100 000 visitors.
With approximately 40 exhibitions, the Rencontres d’Arles offer a general survey of contemporary photographic creation and practices. The relationships suggested within the program are at the core of the different sequences. They allow categories to be identified and, year after year, encourage a thorough exploration of developments in photography.
