Travel Photo Jaipur for a Unique Photographic Experience

Urvee posted on 3rd February

There's a new international, outdoor photography festival launching, and it's going to be held in Jaipur from February 5 - 14 {super-cool Valentine's Day idea, anyone?}.

Tell me more

Obviously, Travel Photo Jaipur will showcase travel photography, and we hear that this launch edition will comprise fourteen exhibitions from around the world, which will be displayed on large prints at some of the city's landmark locations, including the Hawa Mahal, Albert Hall Museum, Jawahar Kala Kendra and even the train station!

Talk it out

During the first weekend of the festival, there will be a series of talks and screenings. Some of the confirmed panellists are: Yumi Goto {co-founder and curator of the Reminders Photography Stronghold}, Giles Tillotson {Former Director of the Royal Asiatic Society, London}, Thomas Seelig {curator, Fotomuseum Winterthur, Switzerland}, Cristina de Middel {award-winning photographer, Spain}, Mauro Bedoni {former photo­-editor Colors Magazine}, Waswo x Waswo {American photographer based in Udaipur}, Rafal Milach {photographer and founder of Sputnik Photos}, and Pablo Ortiz Monasterio {founder of Centro de la Imagen, Mexico DF}.


The festival will also offer two special interventions: A travelling photo studio by set designer and photographer Aradhana Seth, and the conversion of the former Jaipur Art School in Kishanpole Bazar into a temporary exhibition space by photographer Akshay Mahajan.

We recommend you don't miss this.
