Head On Photo Festival Open Air Exhibition
Time Out says
This photo festival went virtual in May, but it's back with an IRL exhibition on the Bondi waterfront
In May, Sydney-based annual photography celebration, Head On Photo Festival, pivoted its offering to an online format for its 11th iteration.
Now, as of July 4, it's exhibiting in person. A series of striking open-air public art installations have been set up to along Bondi's promenade right by the skate park, and will remain there until Sunday, July 26.
A wealth of subjects are explored in the series. Renata Buziak's ‘Medicinal Plant Cycles’, an exploration of science and edible plants in photographs, draws from extensive consultations and dialogue with First Nations residents of the Quandamooka community in Queensland's North Stradbroke Island, while Robert Harding Pittman's 'Coalscapes', which showcases the loss and human impact of coal mining in towns stripped of resources and subsequently abandoned in Germany. Ian Bickerstaff's photographs focus on subjects he met at a primate sanctuary in Cameroon.
Head over to Bondi's promenade for a bracing, wintry seaside stroll, and let your sights dwell on these six thought-provoking exhibitions while you're there.
