Since 1996, right in the midst of the Rencontres d’Arles festival, every first full week in July, Voies Off Festival offers an alternative program (exhibitions, projections, portfolio reviews, professional panel discussions) to a new generation of artists and photographers. Since its inception Voies Off has made a commitment to help young creators. The actions and goals of its program are designed to help and sponsor young fine-art photographers, to display and promote their works with the highest quality, and in the best manner possible.
