The 2nd Cafayate Photo Festival, a photographic seminar that became a tourist attraction of Salta and promotional factor of this destination, will be held between 23 and 29 May in that city of the Calchaquí valleys, according to its organizers.
The seminar, which was presented at the Casa de la Provincia de Salta in Buenos Aires, is open to photographers of all levels and will feature courses, talks and photographic practices in the Quebrada de las Conchas nature reserve.
The organizer of this photographic seminar, Ossian Lindholm, said that “last year 82 photographers from all over the country participated” and said that this year they expect “the presence of 120 professionals from Buenos Aires, Chubut, Santiago del Estero, Tucumán, Salta and Chile, among other places.”
The photographic training days will be divided into two parts, the first of which will be held in Cafayate, where there will be field trips and workshops that will be held at the Patios de Cafayate Hotel.
The second stage continues with a visit to Molinos, Colomé and Cachi, where there will also be photographic exits and visit to the tourist sites in that area.
Lindholm stressed that “photographic tourism is one of the activities with the highest international growth in recent years” and that “this type of tourism is recognized worldwide for generating a great economic impact.”
“ In addition, this type of event helps position the tourist destinations in which they are held, because the images are disseminated in various media around the world,” added the head of the organization of the 2nd Cafayate Photo Festival.
