Photocafe : Exposición fotografica CA-5

PhotoCafé en su quinto aniversario comparte la mirada de cinco fotógrafos de tres países en la convulsionada Centroamérica. Una mirada reflexiva para aunar esfuerzos y alcanzar una mejor avenencia en la región.

Desde sus inicios PhotoCafé ofrece un espacio de calidad, cuenta con curadores de amplia trayectoria en una apuesta a la educación y divulgación visual dedicada exclusivamente a la fotografía. Un respuesta a la madurez del arte fotográfico en la región asi como un voto de confianza a un público cada día más exigente. Con este esfuerzo trazamos las líneas para poner a El Salvador en el circuito de los paises referentes de la imagen.

Hace años que la fotografía es estrella en Festivales como “Les Rencontres d’Arles” y “Visa pour L’image” en Francia, PhotoEspaña en Madrid. Centroamérica urge de un referente.

Por ello “C.A 5” es una muestra audaz. Bajo la curaduría de Christian Poveda, nos honra entregar nuestra galería a estos cinco Autores Centoaméricanos : Edgar Garrido, Chileno radicado en Honduras, Jesús Alfonso y Moisés Castillo de Guatemala, Mario Amaya y Mauro Arias de El Salvador.
