Why have you become a patron of the Arles festival? The Fondation d'entreprise Hermès chose to become a patron of the Rencontres d'Arles because the festival is undeniably one of the major worldwide events in the domain of photography. Its reputation is due to the quality of the exhibitions and their diversity. Going to Arles means discovering new work by recognised photographers or older work from a new angle. However it also means discovering the new generation, discovering photographic creativity through the prism of a specific area (a focus on a particular region) and discovering new ideas on the transformation of the medium (new techniques, new usages). This opens perspectives on new aesthetics or introduces us to themes to widen our knowledge.
