Arles 2014: Interview with Candlestar director, Michael Benson

During our time in Arles Lou Anmella, from French photography website photographie.com, interviewed our Director Michael Benson. Here he discusses the process behind the Prix Pictet prize and our upcoming plans for Photo London 2015.

In Arles this year Prix Pictet had an exhibition and a screening. The exhibition showcased the work of the four laureates of the award – Benoit Aquin, Nadav Kander, Mitch Epstein and Luc Delahaye. The evening screening at the Théâtre Antique featured the work of the shortlisted artists with a special commemorative feature to winner Michael Schmidt, who sadly passed away days after receiving the award.
