Yesterday, despite my dwindling bank account, I visited the European festival of nude photography in Arles.
Photography Festivals in Arles
Arles is a town full of history, roman architecture, light blue shutters and has an enormous market. It also fancies itself as the international capital of photography. Every year, it holds two photography festivals. The smaller of the two is the nude festival, which is in honour of arles- native Lucien Clergue. Born in 1934, Clergue is known throughout this region and the art world for his nudes.
