MARIO CANAL REPORTS FROM ARLES.

  Dear Diane, dear Shaded Viewers…

It would have been funny if yesterday suddently Diane and I met by chance in Arles, visiting the Rencontres, curated this year by Lacroix. I would have loved that but I will see her next friday after she comes back from Stockholm -and I leave my nest in St Remy de Provence to pay a visit to Paris-.

So yesterday, I spent the whole day visiting the photo shows and I have only one word in my mouth: Impeccable. Great selection, great displaying, great fun for anyone. Now I will show you some images I took.
