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.
And to celebrate its love for the camera, Jaipur is hosting the inaugural edition of Travel Photo Jaipur– “a festival of wanderlust” a 9-day festival between 5-14th of Feb, 2016
The event will be celebrated across the Pink City such as the Hawa Mahal, Albert Hall Museum and Jawahar kala Kendra. Photographs printed in large formats of national & international shutterbugs will be displayed that will eventually transform the Pink City into a Photographer’s Paradise.

Although travel has changed much over the past century, it continues to enrich and expand our horizons as ever.
If, as Susan Sontag said, “the camera makes everyone a tourist in other people’s reality”, Travel Photo Jaipur is a call to discover the world through the eyes of that super-tourist: the photographer.
The residents of Jaipur, who live in one of the most visited and celebrated Indian cities, are used to being photographed. With Travel Photo Jaipur, the gaze is now reversed, and it is their turn to observe the photographic wonders of the world.
