Looking forward to the Rencontres d’Arles Photography Festival in early July. I’ll be showing three prints there as part of the Galerie Huit Open Salon show – two from the series Bamboo (Six Seconds) and one from the series Huangshan Ltd. Though that’s really a lame excuse for spending a week in the beautiful old town of Arles in the south of France, smothered in all things visual.
A highlight should be French graffiti artist/photographer JR’s closing night presentation. If you haven’t seen his inspiring 2011 TED Award prize speech then you really should – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0PAy1zBtTbw – on the subject of changing the world using art by, unlikely as it sounds, flyposting massive scale images.
