With billions of photos posted on social networks every day, photography is more than ever the universal language of contemporary society. It is certainly the most immediate and popular medium for transmitting emotions and a vision of the world. Practically since its invention, photography has also been one of the main activities of travelers around the world, capable of creating and circulating multiple imaginaries. This is why the IREST wishes to encourage photographers to share their work which bears witness to the transformations of the tourism sector and the issues and conflicts it raises.
