Head On Photo Awards 2017 Finalist Meg Hewitt
We are all back in the office following Moshe's (our Creative Director), successful trip to China to present a retrospective of the Head On Landscape Prize and to review portfolios at the vast Pingyao International Photography Festival set in Pingyao's old town, a UNESCO world cultural heritage site.
Our own Head On Photo Festival 2018 is now 6 months away - it's a busy and exciting time for us as we start to shape and lock down what will be a superb program for 2018.
The Head On team has also been busy with some other projects - we worked with the City of Sydney to produce the Sydney Rides Photographic Prize at Paddington Reservoir Gardens. We also worked with the wonderful Claudia of Be Productions on the William Street Festival, Paddington where we exhibited Shoot the Wild in conjunction with Shoot the Frame and ran a mobile photography workshop with Douwe Dijkstra, a past Head On Mobile Prize finalist. Many thanks to Douwe and Claudia - it was a great day.
We are really pleased to present this month's highlighted past Head On Photo Awards finalist - Meg Hewitt, a first time finalist of the Head On Landscape Prize in 2017. Meg's featured image 'A Town Was Once Here, Fukushima Province, Japan 2016' is from her series 'Tokyo is yours' which was has been featured on BJP and Huck Magazine. Meg also has first solo gallery show coming up at Flinders Street Gallery, Sydney opening 16 November 2017. Congratulations Meg from all the Head On team.
