This genre is a newcomer to the world of photography but can already hold its own against more traditional and longer standing photographic techniques.

The Universe is Playful

Exhibiting photographer(s): 
Elisabeth Schön

The Universe is Playful explores material and developmental impermanence, logic and absurdity, socialisation and freedom. It questions children's antics as irritations and naughtiness versus the need for control as adults.  It is an ode to the free-form learning and carefree curiosity children naturally possess. A meditation on the domestic and mundane and a celebration of play and discovery. It reminds adults of the transient nature of the accidental installations that will be cleaned up and wiped away and invites them to explore their reaction to disorder and discomfort.

I love street photography and I love exploring and documenting my newly adopted hometown of Sydney with my iPhone. I'm always on the lookout for new angles and in this series I've attempted to provide an alternate depiction of the city by shooting against reflective materials, creating a new reality.

The Head On Landscape Prize and NSW Parliament Landscape Photography Prize was launched in 2013 to encourage a new perspective of an old genre to push creative boundaries and promote work that is informed, but not limited, by traditional practices.

Head On has a broad approach to ‘Landscape’ which encompasses ‘large vista’ images of the natural environment (land or sea), urban or industrial settings. It may include people but are ‘incidental’ rather than the main subject matter.

Signs of Your Identity

Exhibiting photographer(s): 
Daniella Zalcman

For 120 years, the Canadian government operated a network of Indian Residential Schools that were meant to assimilate young indigenous students into western Canadian culture. Indian agents would take children from their homes as young as two or three and send them to church-run boarding schools where they were punished for speaking their native languages or observing any indigenous traditions, routinely sexually and physically assaulted, and in some extreme instances subjected to medical experimentation and sterilization.
