Entitled Kids at War , it is one of the most intriguing shows at this year's Rencontres d'Arles photo-festival. Though not as well-known as his contemporaries, Atget and Lartigue , Gimpel, as this show illustrates, was one of the most restlessly mischievous presences in photography during the belle epoque. He created various experimental series, such as his early self-portraits taken in distorting mirrors, and his so-called "spirit photos", in which he manipulated light to create haloes and auras around his sitters. Kids at War, though, is a true oddity. In , Gimpel befriended a bunch of children who daily played war games on Rue de Grenata in Paris, recreating — in their makeshift way — the battles that raged across Europe. Every Sunday, Gimpel arrived with his new colour camera and orchestrated the kids, helping them create their often exotic military costumes and make wooden rifles, bayonets and even an aeroplane, which he hung on ropes from a lamppost.

Rencontres de la photographie d'Arles
These occa- sions, unparalleled events in world photography, are our pride and that of the city where every year tens of thousands of professionals and amateurs come together to celebrate images, discoveries, and exchanges of all kinds. The festival, on the theme of black and white, produced record figures: 96, visitors -- 11, more than in An unprecedented total, bearing witness to ever-growing interest, generously echoed by French and interna- tional media saluting a rich, ambitious, and unifying programme. This gives us —why should I deny it? The festival is the last to be directed by Franc?
Arles is a stage on the scale of a city. An invitation to the Rencontres throws an intense spotlight on an oeuvre. The artists gratify us by preparing their presence with an extraordinary energy.
