XIAMEN.- Co-created by Sam Stourdzé, the director of famous international photo festival Rencontres d’Arles, and Chinese photographer RongRong (also the founder of Three Shadows Photography Art Centre, first professional art center in China dedicated to photography), Jimei x Arles features international artists selected from Rencontres d’Arles alongside Chinese and Asian photography talents. The festival has attracted more than 100,000 visitors since its inception in 2015.
