Cortona On The Move – Photography in Travel

July 16 – September 27, 2015
Cortona, Italy

Cortona On The Move International Photography Festival is celebrating its first five years of activity. In this short space of time Cortona OTM has rapidly grown to become a significant event in the calendar of professional photographers, journalists, keen amateurs and enthusiasts around the world.

The goal of the festival is to celebrate the Journey: be it real or imaginary, shocking or revolutionary, a voyage of self-discovery or an exposé of the human condition. The sheer beauty of Cortona’s historical buildings, with its ancient Tuscan landscape, is the backdrop for dozens of exhibitions displaying the work of important Italian and foreign photographers, as well as for workshops with contemporary professional photographers. Cortona OTM is also aimed at emerging talents who, through the medium of the Off Circuit, are offered the opportunity to show their work alongside their more famous colleagues, but also to receive helpful advice and criticism of their work in the Portfolio Readings. Each year a jury of distinguished experts elects the winner of Happiness On The Move, an international prize associated with the festival.
