Head On Photo Festival 


When the Great Undoing swept most of Sydney’s cultural life out to sea, there was a collective sigh of despair. But, like other visual art events, the Head On Photo Festival adjusted to the climate, delivering a fabulous online gallery viewed by 80,000 people from across the globe. Now, in true snapback style, they’re reverting to physical exhibitions across 25 spaces indoor and out. Popping up around Sydney, you’ll be able to see everything from nuclear landscapes to Greek drag queens, First Nations women to birthday party kids.
