Unreal Photography Exhibition opens in Sydney as part of the Head On Festival

Unreal is the inaugural group show from the Head On Initiative, Group Show Programme. This opportunity provides a framework for photo-artists of all levels to exhibit their work within the prestigious festival programme.The idea comes from the process of combining the stylistic approaches of fifteen different photographers. We see documentary style work contrasted against surrealist approaches to photography. At some point, each and every photographer must take the decision to favour the real or surreal.

Participating Artists : Remi Chauvin, Luke Cody, Dylan Demarchi, Ana Paula Estrada, Simone Fisher, Jen de Vos & Richard Huynh, Miho Kajioka, Michael Kluge, Alex Korotkoff, Giulia Macario, Laura Moore, Ben Reynolds, Roy Wang, Lilli Waters, Kristian Taylor-Wood.

Show runs from the 3 - 12 May 2015.

Memoria photography exhibition featured as part of Head On Photo Festival Sydney

The mnemonics exhibition Memoria, ran from 14 May through to 1 June 2014 at the Bondi Pavilion Gallery. This event was a featured show and was named by the Head On team as one of the top 10 exhibitions out of more than 200 that ran over a few weeks between 12 May - 8 June 2014. Sydney's Internationally acclaimed, Head On Photo Festival, is Australia's largest photo festival and the world's second largest photo festival.

Memoria is a collection of mobile photography work exploring the idea of memory and how visual media such as photography aids, influences and changes our perception of our own personal narrative. In the past, memories have often been formed and retained through family albums, holiday snaps, letters from loved ones that have been stored in drawers brought out once a year as a reminder ... fragments of our past relived in partial or blurred images.The artists were inspired to fill the void using their mobile phones giving the memory a level of creativity... a chance to rewrite the narrative, perhaps... using the very same medium that aids in retaining memories.

Exhibiting artists : Giulia Macario, George Politis, Kaily Koutsogiannis and Maria Flourou
