The photographer Jacques Revon wanted to share these photographs he took during the Rencontres d’Arles in the 1980s.
“I took these while working as a photographer for Ilford. Before becoming a television journalist and reporter, I worked as a photographer for 15 years. From 1976 to 1981, I was a photographer and technician at the Ilford factory near Lyon. As part of my duties there, I attended the Rencontres d’Arles photo festival many times.”
