Head on Photo Festival returns to Global Gallery With three Exhibitions featuring 15 Photo Artists, spread over six weeks.
Head On Photo Festival, Australia’s largest Photographic Festival and the world’s second largest, is heading into its fourth year. Head On celebrates a wide range of photography across all genres, from photojournalism to reportage; from commercial to fine art. With over 200 events at 100 venues, the 2012 Festival was a resounding success and this year is already shaping up to be bigger and better than the last.
Events this year will be spread across Sydney from the CBD extending North, South, East and West. Aside from traditional venues such as art galleries and museums, exhibitions and events are set in less formal venues such as cafes, pubs and Centennial Park. Most events are free of charge and throughout the Festival there are chances to take part in workshops, Artists’ talks, open studios and weekend seminars. With the diverse range of venues, events and photography, Head On Photo Festival offers something for everyone.
The Head On Photo Festival is a creation of the Head On Foundation; a non-profit organisation started in 2008. The foundation aims to promote photography, to encourage excellence and innovation and to raise awareness of important issues through photography. The Festival reflects a diverse cross-section of new and traditional photographic practices and it’s Portrait Prize is the most critically acclaimed photographic portrait competition in Australia.
All projects are operated with the basic philosophy of ‘inclusivity’. Work is selected based on merit rather than the celebrity of the subject or photographer. Head On endeavours to provide all photo artists with an equal opportunity to be seen.
Opening Wednesday 10th April 6pm and running until Sunday 28th April
