The exhibition featured 58 pieces by 19 photographers from Sonora.

Hello, hello! Welcome to VisitSonora, where you will find valuable information about our state. Today's article is related to one previously published under the title “Itinerant photographic exhibition ‘Sonora, a treasure to be discovered’ was exhibited in Washington, D.C.”, do you remember it? Well, that same one changed the spotlight in Mexico City!
The exact location was the Gandhi Open Gallery located at the gates of the Chapultepec Forest (Bosque de Chapultepec), a place that receives more than 8 million tourists a year. This was made possible thanks to the collaboration of the Government of the State of Sonora with the Secretary of Culture of Mexico City and with the support of the Secretary of Tourism of the State of Sonora, which was in charge of setting it up.
        The exhibition featured 58 pieces by 19 photographers from Sonora, and artistically exhibited images with faces of members of the Comcáac Nation, as well as flora, fauna, culture, history, and the beauty of many of Sonora's most beautiful landscapes, such as its desert, mountains, rivers, and sea.
        Among the photographs captured were images of the El Pinacate Biosphere Reserve and Gran Desierto de Altar, such as the famous "El Colorado" crater and the desert dunes, and examples of Sonoran pronghorns and bighorn sheep, as well as cactus, sahuaros, and cardons. Also its Magical Towns, streams and natural aquariums, and sunsets and sunrises of all kinds of colors, with the clouds, the moon, the sun, or the stars as protagonists. Also, Tastiota beach, where the convergence between the desert and the sea can be appreciated.
This set of photographs was the result of a call launched by the Governor of Sonora, Alfonso Durazo, during the first week of April, which resulted in this exhibition that showed the beauties of our state.
    With these initiatives, we intend to put our state in the sights of new national visitors through a demonstration of its wonders to increase the attraction of tourists during the year, and strengthen tourism as an engine of development for the economy of Sonora's families.
