If you’re a photography lover and you’re planning a visit to France this summer, a must see is Les Rencontres d’Arles. Situated in the small southern town of Arles, this summer photography festival was founded in 1970 by a photographer, an author and a historian. Since then, it’s gained international renown with exhibits of new work each year. The photographs are displayed in different venues around Arles, and also inhabit atypical exhibition spaces such as old factories and historic churches. The festival starts in July and ends in September.
