The Rencontres d'Arles is celebrating its 48th anniversary in Southern France in July, with the theme The Experience of Territory.

With approximately 40 exhibitions, the Rencontres will put its international focus on Colombia this year, showcasing works of nearly 30 Colombian professional photographers. It will also offer a glimpse of Iran from 1979-2017 through the lens of Iranian photographers.

Big names for the 2017 Rencontres will include Joel Meyerowitz, Michael Wolf, Marie Bovo, Mathieu Pernot and Roger Ballen.

Meanwhile, a fine collection of Amelie star Audrey Tautou's photos will meet the public for the first time in 15 years.
