Panama City Photowalk. On Saturday, September 3 the third photowalk of collective “#LaRutaDelMetro”, will be held throughout the area of Obarrio, Panama City, open to participation for photographers of all levels.
The idea for #LaRutaDelMetro is the brainchild of professional photographer, Jose Cho, who started photowalks as a way to bring together colleagues and photographers to share their passion for photography with other photo-enthusiasts. Photowalks take place at different iconic places around the city and use Line 1 of the Panama Metro as a meeting place and as a transportation method during the walks, while taking advantage of public spaces.
The idea is simple. The photowalk begins with a networking session and exchange of ideas and photographic skills, then, continues with a walk to take pictures of different monuments and everyday scenes of the city, putting into practice what they have just shared.
Anyone with a camera of any kind can participate, from professional cameras and experienced photographers to cell phones and novice photographers starting in the field of photography. The main idea is to share and encourage the use of photography as a method of expression and an agent for change .
In previous editions “#LaRutaDelMetro”, has visited different representative places of the city like the Bahai Temple on Sonsonate hill, the “5 de Mayo” plaza in Calidonia, the “Barrio La Exposicion” in the Bellavista area and the headquarters of the National Lottery; all of them accessible through the Metro Line 1. Afterwards, photographs of those who participated in the walk are included in an open display, which is planned after the event.
The photowalk on Saturday is entitled “Documenting Obarrio” and the meeting point will be the 5 de Mayo Metro station at 3 p.m. Participation is free. For more information visit Instagram.com/LaRutaDelMetro
