'Site Specific' Photographs by Olivo Barbieri

Since its founding in 1970, the Rencontres d’Arles  has been the ne plus ultra of photo festivals—a place for discoveries, and the exchange of ideas and work. During the opening week in early July, the streets of this medieval town (and home to Vincent Van Gogh for many years) are flooded with photographers—and photographs.
This year, Aperture coproduced and exhibition, curated by Martin Parr and Wassinklundgren: The Chinese Photobook.

"I first started photographing out of an almost pathological curiosity. Photography gave me license to be on the front row of things, to go to where the energy is, to explore places I might not have entered without the camera."

"I didn’t grow up to be a photographer, but I do work professionally in the fields of sculpture and studio furniture. I fondly look at Aperture as a formative object in my life—one that opened a window to the beautiful and strange world of images, and to large ideas."

Is the story of photography coming to a close, or is it just beginning?
