Evangelia Kranioti explores the borderlines of the world and captures individual destinies caught in the net of Man’s trade. Cargo ports, highways, the backstage of a carnival, graveyards, war ruins: settings of both ceaseless transit and immobilized lives, nailed to the ground or anchored at sea. In her project Exotica, Erotica, Etc., long-distance sailors await the next stopover, longing to form temporary and priced loves. In Obscuro Barroco, the urban queer scene unfolds in Rio de Janei… more

The artists gratify us by preparing their presence with an extraordinary energy. The Rencontres' current formula is unique in the world.
After directing 15 editions, I am leaving the Rencontres d'Arles. For this, my final edition, I wanted a marvellous parade with photographers and collections never seen before at the Rencontres, along with the artists whose presence has m… more
ARLES IN BLACK
What meaning does black and white photography have today? Is it fiction, poetry, abstraction or pure nostalgia? The 2013 Rencontres is radically dedicated to black and white photography, presenting entirely new creations from renowned artists, along with discoveries, treasures from the past and, of course, a few exceptions in colour. This year this top photography rendezvous that brings the world to Arles is a must-see phase of the 2013 Marseille-Provence, European Capital of Cu… more

Ten yea… more
