Head On Foundation (est. 2008) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the work of photographers at all stages of career, encouraging excellence and innovation, making photography accessible to all and raising awareness of important issues through photography. The main activities of the Foundation are Head On Photo Festival and Head On Awards (Portrait, Landscape, Mobile and Student photographic prizes) and collaborative projects.
Head On Photo Festival is a bridge between Australian and international photographic markets. The festival has toured in America, China, India, Europe and New Zealand. This has introduced the international photographic elite to the wealth of photographic talent Australia possesses.
This year’s festival is different from the past, since this year’s photography festival exhibition will be launched online. Live in Art Sydney is invited to participate in the festival, and we will cooperate with the Head On committee to present this year’s special photography exhibition. We are honoured to invite three outstanding Chinese photography artists to tell wonderful stories for this exhibition, who are Xiangjie Peng, Keqing Sun and Ruya Qian.
