Head On Photo Festival is a bridge between Australian and international photographic markets. Artists coming from Japan, Israel, Canada, Switzerland, Poland, Germany, the United States, South Korea and Australia shape the brilliant exhibitions that Head On is presenting, which feature contemporary fine art photography, photojournalism and portraiture. On the occasion of their anniversary celebration, the festival also includes workshops, conversations, artist and curators talks, and photowalks apart from the over one hundred exhibitions all around Sydney.
“Head On prides itself in being a platform that presents world-class exhibitions that place the work of internationally recognised artists alongside those of emerging and established Australian talent. 2019 is set to be our most exciting year yet as we celebrate our 10th anniversary with a robust program that brings some the world’s leading photographic artists to audiences across Sydney”, Head On Festival Director Moshe Rosenzveig OAM stated.
Head On Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the work of photographers at all stages of their career, encouraging excellence and innovation, and raising awareness of important issues through photography. They conduct the Head On Festival but also de Head On Awards, judged by internationally renowned photographers, picture editors and curators. The Awards represent a global selection of the best work from emerging and established photographers across four categories including portrait, landscape and mobile, which are open internationally to professional and amateur photographers from classical and contemporary styles.
