Cortona On The Move - photography in travel was born in 2011 on the initiative of ONTHEMOVE cultural association. Right from the outset some of the world’s top photographers brought their work to Cortona while the festival instantly attracted the attention of industry professionals because of its strong international flavour.
The first edition of the festival offered ten principal exhibitions and six OFF Circuit exhibitions. Then, from the second edition on, artistic direction was placed in the expert hands of Arianna Rinaldo. The last edition attracted almost 25,000 visitors to Cortona to see the work of 24 photographers. Every year the quantity and quality of works on display increases proportionally to the number of its visitors. In 2013 Time magazine placed the festival in its guide to the top ten festivals not to be missed, then in 2014 some of the most important magazines in the world reviewed the festival.
In such a short space of time Cortona OTM has become "the best festival in Europe if not the world", to quote the words of Donald Winslow, photojournalist and editor of News Photographer Magazine. The challenge for us is to keep on improving this record, thanks to the work and commitment of all our staff. Cortona OTM is organized in collaboration with Studio Metria agency.
