For the third edition of OpenWalls Arles, a collaboration between Galerie Huit Arles and 1854 Media, we are inviting photographers to respond to the theme Then & Now.
We are seeking images that convey a sense of reflection or the changes that time brings. How have you, or your families, grown and developed? How has the past year affected us? Has history repeated itself? What challenges face us ahead? We want artists to explore the theme in many different ways. Experiment with new work, revisit past or forgotten projects or examine your past archive and found imagery.ENTER NOW
