"Man is unhappy because he doesn’t know he’s happy." (Fyodor Dostoyevsky)


Les Rencontres d'Arles Book Award selection

Robert Rutoed's work is published in the book "An Eye for an Ear"
which is included in this year's Les Rencontres d'Arles Book Award selection, on display at Atelier de Chaudronnerie from July 1 through September 22, 2013.

"An Eye For An Ear" explores photographic observations, concepts, emotions, experiences and beliefs relating to the silences and the sounds of our society and the visible and invisible that surrounds us. Changes in how we view the world as a result of the development of new communication technologies, things that we see but that others may not hear or be aware of, unspoken silences of fear and desolation, the joys of sound in laughter and music and universal pictorial expressions.

Photography Open Salon is a global platform for great photographic art and the discourse that surrounds it: in space, in print and on screen. founded as an artist-led initiative, it is designed to share, promote and exhibit photographic stories and expressions, and enable new photographic work to be seen, communicated, commissioned and published by creating new audiences, dialogue, followers and collectors. since its inception in 2011 Photography Open Salon has exhibited over 200 photographers from 45 countries on two continents. The exhibited work has been published in two books "Transience" and "An Eye for an Ear". Both books are part of 2013 Rencontres d’Arles Book Award selection.

Founded in 1970 by photographer Lucien Clergue, writer Michel Tournier and historian Jean-Maurice Rouquette, the Arles photography festival, Les Rencontres d'Arles, has become a festival of international reference. This is thanks to its programme composed of essentially unseen works, unearthed over the years by numerous photographers, which are unveiled every summer.
