Inexpensive devices and new and emergent platforms for sharing enable young people to spontaneously capture and publish images, reaching far wider audiences than in the past. This shift in the way we engage with and practice photography is in line with the festival ethos of inclusivity.

The Head On Student Prize was launched in 2015 to celebrate and nurture the huge talent-pool of next generation of photo-artists and is one of four categories of the Head On Photo Awards.

Sat, 05/05/2018 - Sun, 05/20/2018

Exhibition Description

To put it simply, borders primarily enforce boundaries, minimizing — if not eliminating — gray areas.

They can indicate physical lines separating political and/or geographic regions, and they can also be applied to metaphysical confines we apply to our everyday lives via human interaction and relationships.

For this annual exhibition, we encouraged photographers to consider the concept of borders as both physical barriers and as intangible perimeters.

The project “Reaction” investigates the response of various participants as they listen to the sounds of Christian, Jewish and Muslim prayers. The act was conducted in the heart of Jerusalem, a place which compose the essence of inter-religious existence.


The outcome is a series of vertical “video portraits” preforming identical soundtrack, depicting the various recipient’s reactions. The complete portrait composition enhances the gap between each of the subject matter’s body language and their relations with the various played audios.
