Our goal is to inform, educate, and inspire in all things photography-related.

Thirty-five authors, national and international, in an emotional, fantastic and surreal journey, which aims to lead the participants to embark on a journey in search of what the unconscious hides.

From the nature of mystical landscapes, to the intense and dreamy gazes of portraits, a selection of works by national and international photographers awaits the visitor for a journey into the unconscious that lives in each of us.
