Photography is now more present than ever, raised to the status of a universal language, pervasively produced, shared and consumed. The festival, through its exhibitions, reflects on authorship, point of view and legitimacy, on how subject and object intersect, collide and end up coexisting
In the 2022 edition, Cortona On The Move continues its research in the field of documentary photography with a focus on the incessant evolution of visual language by extending international collaborations and presenting original and unpublished productions.
The Exhibitions of 2022
What exactly happens when we photograph? Is photography a weapon or an illuminating beacon? Who has the right to photograph what? Is the consent of the photographed obligatory? Are we still photographing windows or are we just lost in a giant hall of mirrors looking at ourselves endlessly? These are questions that have been debated for decades and are intrinsic to the nature of the medium, but which have recently re-emerged with new vigour driven by the identity battle that has engulfed us. The realisation that it is urgent to reconsider how ethnicity, gender and class are represented is disrupting old unwritten rules and writing new ones.
There are many exhibitions to visit that provide an international view.
