Les arènes d'Arles

by Benoit Paillé

‘‘ While I was out walking, I suddenly saw an employee alone in the centre of the ring. He was raking the sand. Usually, photos of this
place show bullfights packed with people. I wanted to take this opportunity to break that code. ”

The Artist

Aged 26, this young Canadian photographer studied medical biology for 3 years before turning to the arts. He is now a renowned, self-taught photographer, whose work has been published several times around the world. He has taken part in many exhibitions in Canada, Japan, the US, Barcelona, Moscow and Paris. His projects are all people-oriented and based on portraits and night-time themes.


Les Arènes d'Arles


During the "Capital of Culture" year, the world's four finest schools of equestrian art were invited to saddle up at the prestigious Arles Arena, decorated by none other than Christian Lacroix. Today, life at the Roman amphitheatre, ranked a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has returned to its normal non-stop self, with highlights including two world-acclaimed ferias and traditional Camargue races.
