Open Walls Arles 2020
Exhibition from 26th June to 5th September 2020
From 1854 Media & British Journal of Photography in collaboration with Galerie Huit Arles, OpenWalls Arles is an international photography award designed to elevate the careers of emerging and established photographers by exhibiting their work in the prestigious and historic location of Arles.
We are thrilled to announce the 63 winners of OpenWalls Arles 2020: 50 winning single images and two winning series from the ‘Growth’ category, alongside ten single images and one winning series from the ‘Daily Life’ category.
The ‘Daily Life’ winners showcase powerful perceptions of the everyday: quiet moments that speak volumes of a subject’s reality; seemingly mundane scenes that, in truth, hold a deep significance. Our ‘Growth’ winners convey compelling depictions of change or transition — whether in the form of personal growth, or shifts in nature and the environment.
The images have been selected by an international panel of judges, which includes Julia de Bierre (Galerie Huit Arles), Fariba Farshad (Photo London), Gwen Lee (Singapore International Photography Festival and DECK) and Stephan Erfurt (C/O Berlin Foundation).
