‘AlUla a place with narrative at its heart with every landscape telling a story — of continuity’

February 23, 2022 - Saudi Gazette

The official launch of the first edition of Cortona on the Move AlUla took place this weekend. The founders and officials of the original Cortona on the Move in Tuscany, Italy, were in attendance with a group of international media and artists whose work is being exhibited in the site-responsive narrative photography festival.

The title of the exhibition, Past Forward – Time, Life and Longing came together organically as conversations with the artists evolved.

Themes in the first edition of Cortona on the Move AlUla range from important and emotive stories from artists Tanya Habjouqa’s Tomorrow There will be Apricots, and Omar Iman, Live, Love, Refugee and climate change with Simon Norfolk’s, Shroud and Mohammad AlFaraj’s Guardians of the Oasis.
