San José Foto 2016
San José Foto is an international photo festival located in San José de Mayo, Uruguay. With an international focus, its main goal is to bring photography into this inland region of Uruguay and closer to ordinary people with the use of new formats and unconventional spaces. Facades, bars, containers, streets, and storefronts all serve to engage the public with the images, promoting reflection and interaction.

San José Foto also gives importance to education, offering workshops, curator tours, portfolio reviews, lectures, and screenings and helping nurture young photographers by inviting international authors.
A highlight of the festival was a free portfolio review for more than 50 Latin American photographers, where they were able to meet with editors from National Geographic, the Open Society Foundations, and other publications, as well as photographers from Prime.
