Twenty of us went to Les Rencontres d’Arles. It was sunny (most of the time). We saw photography, a lot of photography. We talked about it, in galleries, over coffee, over ice creams. We ate a lot and were in turn eaten by mosquitoes. It was good – at least that’s my conclusion – it will be interesting to see student reactions – please post links to learning logs in the comments below.
Thanks are due to Jesse and Sharon for the insightful tutor input, to Amano for organising the student meal on the Thursday, to Brian for warning us of the mosquitoes in advance, to Eileen for organising the payment of the bill at Friday meal, to Vicki for organising the closing party, and to everyone else for making the event so pleasurable. Thanks are also due to Stan, John and Keith, who had gone ahead and sent feedback on exhibitions to see which was invaluable in the planning.
