The National Superior School of Photography (ENSP), founded in 1982 in Arles, is a higher education establishment for fine art photography. Under the general supervision of the French Ministry of Culture, the School’s principal mission is to give theoretical knowledge and in-depth technical skills. A singular place for experimentation, research and creation, the ENSP has always adapted to the technical changes impacting photographic media, while promoting critical reflection on the images, from other fields of art. After they graduate, the School’s students work in a wide range of image-related fields as artists, teachers, curators, art commissioners, art restores and other art related professions. In 2012, to celebrate its 30th anniversary, the School held an exhibition featuring over 30 graduates as part of the main events of Les Rencontres d’Arles.
