Luxembourg artist Michel Medinger is exhibiting his photographs at the Chapelle de la Charité, as part of the 55th Rencontres de la photographie d’Arles, thanks to the support of the Lët’z Arles association which, since 2016, has ensured the presence of Luxembourg artists at this photography festival created in 1970. The chapel’s baroque altar offers an exceptional setting for Michel Medinger’s poetic photographic work, whose subjects evoke a cabinet of curiosities.
