Message from the Festival Director

Welcome to the 8th annual Head On Photo Festival.

The Festival returns with another fabulous program packed full of exciting exhibitions, workshops and talks presented by a mix of Australian and international talent.

This year we welcome international presenters (and exhibiting artist/curators) Maggie Steber and Robin Schwartz – both Guggenheim Fellows; Natan Dvir, Roger Anis, Founder of Everyday Climate Change James Whitlow Delano and from Instagram, Q. Sakamaki.

I’m also pleased to present our revamped website with fantastic new features to help you navigate our program.

It’s going to be a great festival and I look forward to meeting to you.
