Caféfoto was created at the Rencontres d’Arles in 2007 for shared, free and open portfolio readings. Since 2009, the Centre Iris in Paris has hosted Caféfoto on one Saturday each month. Photography professionals sit at ‘open tables’, welcome photographers, and look at their portfolios. One ‘reader’ and 4 to 6 photographers sit at each table in a relaxed atmosphere. The event fosters an ever more helpful analysis of images and approaches. Avoiding the over-intimate feel of a one-to-one meeting, the photographer prepares to share his or her images with the public for the first time. The idea is to create a warm, useful dynamic spotlighting the work of art photographers and giving advice relating to their careers. After the monthly Caféfoto sessions in Paris and over 3 days at the Rencontres d’Arles, four photographers are selected and will be exhibited at the Centre Iris. These new photographers explore a world that is within their reach with traditional cameras, producing poetic, beautiful images, often with a strong social message, that constantly challenge the status quo.
