This week’s eye on the photography world takes Martin Parr’s American Deep South, an exhibition of photographs through windows, Les Rencontres d’Arles, a naked cat and the Tour de France.
Here’s a little extract:
Magnum celebrates 65 years If you’ve been in Arles for the last few days preparing for Les Rencontres d’Arles which starts today, you may have noticed a few well known names walking the streets, taking the odd picture here and there. This is because the Magnum Photos annual meeting has been taking place. Normally held in Paris, the AGM has moved to the festival town in celebration of 65 years of the esteemed agency. And there’s obviously many more to come as later today Magnum will be announcing the status’ of its new members. Photographers such as Larry Towell and Alessandra Sanguinetti will be giving workshops and there will be screenings of work by René Burri, Elliott Erwitt, Cartier-Bresson and Raymond Depardon at the Théâtre Antique.
