“Me, myself and eye”: the intimate relationship between photography, society and identity is the core of Cortona on the Move

The 2022 edition of Cortona On The Move reflects on authorship, points of view and legitimacy.

From 14 July to 2 October 2022, the international festival of photography Cortona On The Move opens its doors to the public with dozens of exhibitions spread across the town’ historical centre, the Medici Fortress of Girifalco and the new location “Station C” in Camucia, a hamlet of the municipality of Cortona.

Photography is now more present than ever, raised to the status of universal language, pervasively produced, shared and consumed. Through its exhibitions, the festival reflects on authorship, point of view and legitimacy, on how subject and object intersect, clash and end up coexisting. Observing these dynamics, it questions photography as a means of expression and sharing.


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 subject being photographed compulsory? 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. However, they have recently re-emerged with new vigour driven by the identity battle that has engulfed us. The realisation that there is an urgent need to reconsider how ethnicity, gender and class are represented is disrupting old unwritten rules and writing new ones.
