During my stay I made a series of photographs with Fomapan 400 120 black and white film, using two cameras – a plastic Holga and a much more sophisticated Fuji GF670.
Some two and a half years later I finally developed the film. It has been a wonderful experience reviewing my images from back then. I had forgotten what a joy it is to review film at a significant delay from the time when it was shot….I must do more of this!!
I had two aims in mind. The first was to capture the atmosphere of the Grand-Hotel Nord-Pinus where we stayed. It is a wonderful old place with lots of art and photography on the walls, dark corners and old architecture. It is right in the centre of Arles and I can thoroughly recommend it. These three Holga images capture something of the mystique of the place.
The second series of images were about how Rencontre D’Arles the photographic festival is embedded in Arles, the place. This is a selection of the images I made.
