Les Rencontres d’Arles 2014: iPhone Visual Diary by Alicia Bruce

The Rencontres d’Arles (formerly known as the Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie d’Arles) is a summer photography festival founded in 1970 by Arles photographer Lucien Clergue, author Michel Tournier and historian Jean-Maurice Rouquette. The Rencontres d’Arles’ policy of programming almost exclusively new work has earned it a world-wide reputation. In 2013, there were 96000 visitors to the festival.

The exhibitions, often co-produced with both French and foreign museums and institutions, are given on various heritage sites, suitably stage-designed for the purpose. Some sites (for example, 12th century chapels or 19th century industrial buildings) are open to the public only for the duration of the festival.

Scottish photographer Alicia Bruce is visiting the festival this year and has sent us these iPhone images from her personal visual diary of the event.
