Paper Boats by Mohammed Al Shammarey

In 2013, The Image Festival sees large. Macro & Me is the theme. This is the opportunity for us to explore concepts that often escape us: Size. Weight. Distance. Power. Time. Intensity. These familiar concepts - and many more – build, since time began, our relationship to the world. By modifying his frame of reference, the artist often questions his observation of the universe; He, who disrupts the common criteria enables us to discover new dimensions. We may master daily scales and frames of references, but the immensely huge or the immensely small are of a fine comprehension. It affects us – moves us, disturbs us, overwhelms us, devastates us - or simply leaves us indifferent more than we know. The Image Festival #3 immerses us in the eyes of these photographers facing immensity – whether it be huge or small.

The festival is organized by the Institut français in Jordan in partnership with Darat Al Tasweer, Greater Amman Municipality and the Rencontres d’Arles, international photography festival and creator of the Night of The Year that will be presented for the first time in Jordan.

15 venues, 25 artists, workshops, publications, 2 competitions, special guests and Night of the Year by the Rencontres d’Arles! Enjoy the festival!
