About us
Head On Photo Festival is an international photography event presented by the not-for-profit Head On Foundation (est. 2008), comprising exhibitions and events, transforming public spaces into cultural destinations, and bringing people together to celebrate photography. Many shows presented by Head On are world premieres.

Led by Creative Director Moshe Rosenzveig OAM each year, judges select all exhibiting photographers through Head On's unique judging process, in which they judge works anonymously, ensuring a diverse range of stories and equal opportunity.

This year, exhibitions and conversations explore important global issues - the impacts of COVID-19, global conflict, refugees, feminism, motherhood, pop culture, the environment, youth homelessness and gentrification. Moshe Rosenzveig OAM, Founder and Creative Director of Head On Foundation, shares, "The event is family-friendly and enjoyed by Sydneysiders, interstate and international visitors of all ages. The exhibitions' appeal merges the boundaries between everyday people, photographic enthusiasts, and artists. It's the perfect way to enjoy the sunshine, particularly after the previous two years of lockdown."
