For the fourth edition of OpenWalls Arles, from British Journal of Photography in collaboration with Galerie Huit Arles, we are looking for photographers to respond to the theme Truth.
We invite photographers to share work that responds to the theme in creative, thought-provoking ways. We are looking for work that considers what truth means in contemporary photography. How does the truth inform the ways we see the world today? Whose truth does a photograph show? Most importantly, what does truth look like to you?
