For anyone visiting Jaipur, it is customary for him to keep the camera shutters happy with ample photography opportunities in the Pink City. Be its magnificent forts, mesmeric lakes, gorgeous palaces, compelling historic structures, fascinating markets, colorful vistas, there are plenty subjects that do not let your camera leave its charm to capture frames.
But for the very first time, Jaipur will play host to an international open-air travel photography festival- Travel Photo Jaipur. This is the inaugural edition of the festival, which is to be an annual event-taking place in Jaipur each February.
With large format photographic prints on display across the city, Travel Photo Jaipur will invite the visitors to discover the heritage along with events and interventions that will eventually transform the Pink City into a platform for showcasing and contemplating photography.
The 9day festival between 5-14th of Feb, 2016 by an acclaimed list of national and international exhibiting photographers will be open to all, residents and visitors alike, reaffirming Jaipur’s position as an international cultural haven for the arts.
In addition to the displays of the 14 exhibiting photographers, a number of special interventions and exhibitions will also be staged during the festival time.
