Head On Photo Festival

Head On Photo Festival, the creation of Moshe Rosenzveig and Head On Foundation, returns to Sydney for its fourth year from 17th May until the 23rd June. The Festival has grown significantly since launched in 2010 from 70 events to over 200 in 2013. Showcasing work from over 900 Australian and international photographers, the Festival is Australia’s largest photography festival.

Head On Photo Festival celebrates a wide range of photography across all genres from photojournalism and reportage through commercial to fine art. This year Head On exhibitions cover everything from Hollywood stars, convict life and Afghan soldiers to striking landscapes, compelling portraits and innovative uses from high-end photography through to mobile phones and plastic cameras.

For the first time, Head On Portrait Prize will be at State Library of New South Wales with several other shows. They include the landmark Magnum on Set – A Magnum Photos Touring Exhibition presented in partnership with the State Library NSW, a captivating collection of 116 iconic images of Hollywood stars like Marilyn Monroe, James Dean and Elizabeth Taylor on film sets by photographers from the legendary Magnum agency, and the work of international rising star Benjamin Lowy. In other highlights, influential New York gallerist Yossi Milo will, for the first time, bring his gallery show to Stills Gallery.

Joining Head On Portrait Prize this year is the inaugural Head Off Landscape Prize showing at Paddington Reservoir Gardens and Head On Momento Photobook Prize at State Library. The three prizes, which make up the Head On Awards, are open competitions attracting thousands of entries and record viewers year on year.
