The programme for Cortona On The Move 2016

Photography exhibitions

The exhibition itinerary for the 2016 edition takes us from the single room occupancy for drug addicts in Family Love by Darcy Padilla to the tax havens portrayed by Paolo Woods and Gabriele Galimberti with their The Heavens; through the horrors of contemporary war, photographed by Lynsey Addario in her It's What I Do, to the frontiers of the American hinterland, documented by Lucas Foglia in Frontcountry. Together with Deasung Lee, winner of the Happiness On The move 2015 award, we discover the desertification of Mongolia in Futuristic Archaeology; with Rachel Papo's Homeschooled we meet the kids who study at home instead of going to regular schools in the U.S.A. We get to travel with the tinkers of Mattia Zoppelaro in his Appleby, and we journey into African countries with Simona Ghizzoni as she exposes in Uncut the barbarous but still widespread practice of female genital mutilation. Cortona On The Move also hosts a unique event with The Larry Towell Show - the first European retrospective of this great Canadian photographer Larry Towell.

أوروب Europa is a special project for Cortona On The Move 2016 involving a photographic exhibition and a book to be distributed in the refugee reception centres around Europe. The أوروب Europa project, jointly produced with Magnum Photos and the Spanish association Al-liquindoi, is dedicated to immigrants and asylum seekers for the purpose introducing them to our continent through a series of images selected by Arianna Rinaldo from the Magnum agency archives.

COTM16 Photobook Review and Prize

One of the novelties for the 2016 edition of the festival is our Photobook Review and Prize, with a call for dummy or prototype photobook. Eleven works were to be chosen by Jörg Colberg of Conscientious Photography Magazine and published on the website of Cortona On The Move, five of which were critiqued during the week of the festival inauguration, while one is being published and placed on sale in the 2017 edition.
