Preview of To Heal a World in Arles


Description

From 4 July to 25 September at Palais de l'Archevêché, les Rencontres de la Photographie d'Arles

Humanitarian images entered our lives over a century ago and are now a regular feature in the news. Such images often convey a sense of immediacy and certainty, setting a scene that allows for only one interpretation. We think we fully understand the event in question without considering what might lie just outside the frame. But the reality on the ground is always more complex that its representation, which is by nature incomplete.

The exhibition is a joint production by the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum and the Rencontres d’Arles. The works presented are from the collections of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC).
