Santiago Escobar-Jaramillo presents his exhibition at Verzasca Foto Festival

Verzasca Foto aims to promote emerging international photographers and to support visual arts in rural and peripheral areas, by giving free space through connection and dialogues with nature, offering access to different forms of expression and ways of visual storytelling.


The festival takes place in a mountain valley, made up of small villages of stone houses and surrounded by dense, lush nature. An intimate and informal meeting place where participants have the opportunity to share ideas and points of view. During the festival main days you can enjoy outdoor exhibitions, artists presentations, guided visits, meeting, portfolio reviews, night screenings and live music.


For its tenth edition, Verzasca Foto Festival explores the theme “Youth”: an invitation to experiment, a time when everything is waiting to be explored. In the frame of the festival, Colombian photographer Santiago Escobar-Jaramillo, who was in residency during three months in Verzasca Valley, will celebrate the opening of his exhibition “il cuore migra” on Saturday 2nd of September at 17:00.
