In early July I was lucky enough to be back in Arles for Rencontres d'Arles photography festival. Spent 5 days there seeing some wonderful exhibitions - highlights included Jonas Bendiksen’s The Last Testament; Matthieu Gafou's Augmented Humanity; The Train, RFK's Last Journey featuring work by Paul Fusco, Rein Jelle Terpstra and Philippe Parreno; A Pillar of Smoke - work by contemporary Turkish photographers, and Pixel Forest by Pipilotti Rist. However there were lots of other notable exhibitions and I was happy to be one of nearly 500 women artists included in The Family of No Man exhibition at Cosmos which was juried by Brad Feuerhelm and Natasha Christia. Work was displayed across the courtyard and in many interior rooms as well as projected on several screens. I had a couple of recent colour photographs from River Stories featured.
There are a few interesting things happening behind the scenes - waiting for official confirmation before sharing any information. In the meantime I'm just continuing to photograph across several series - this month it's been mainly Unseen Landscapes, Riverbed Stories and the Great North Wood.
