Among the exhibitions at this year’s Arles photography festival, Christophe Rihet’s “Road to Death” stands out for its chilling sense of fate, notes AnOther. The New York- and Paris-based Rihet has made pilgrimages to sites where pop-culture icons have died, photographing them wholly emptied of activity at dawn or at dusk. Included is the drive near L.A.’s Chateau Marmont where Helmut Newton died, the East Hampton road where Jackson Pollock died, and the lonely stretch of California highway where James Dean died.
