International Photography Festival
The FOTOSEPTIEMBRE USA-SAFOTO Int'l Photography Festival is a unique and eclectic forum for the exhibition and celebration of photography and photography-based art forms.
For fifteen years, the FOTOSEPTIEMBRE USA-SAFOTO Festival has fostered a growing interest in the photographic arts in South Texas, with established and mid-career artists showcasing their talents alongside a burgeoning pool of avid photographic artists and enthusiasts. This growth reflects a deep interest in photographyboth as an art form and as a means of personal and cultural expression, and is indicative of the enthusiasm with which San Antonians have embraced the Festival.
