IRAN Année 38
es Editions Textuels, a publisher in Arles, presented a preview of its forthcoming book of photographs of Iran edited by Newsah Tavakolian and Anahita Ghabaian at the Rencontres d’Arles, the major photography exhibition in Europe, from July 3 to September 24, 2017. SMF contributed to the catalogue featuring 60 photographers and over 200 photographs whose work was exhibited on on the beautiful main square of Arles during the Rencontres. With a new art and education centre designed by Frank Gehry and Annabel Selldorf promising to make Arles a major cultural destination in France, it is hoped that Iranian photography will maintain its place in any future festivals held there.
