HEADON FESTIVAL 2015, SYDNEY
URBAN COLLECTIVE - SYDNEY STREET PHOTOGRAPHERS
ABOUT THE HEAD ON FESTIVAL:
Head On turns the city of Sydney into a living cross-section of cutting edge photography and video media. Exhibiting across all genres and experiences, Head On is a platform for the passion of the photographers, the excitement of the audiences, the beauty of the medium and the issues photography addresses.
Head On Photo Festival is a bridge between Australian and International photographic markets. In 2014 alone, Head On exhibited 55 artists from 18 countries. Festival tours in America, China and New Zealand introduced the international photographic elite and audiences in excess of 500, 000 to the wealth of photographic talent Australia possess with great acclaim.
Urban Collective – is an exhibition of approximately 30+ chosen artists from the Sydney Street Photographers. A selection of the ‘best of’ will display the underlying philosophy of street photography: that is, the depiction of the human condition in an urban environment. The images, by their very nature will indirectly expose the viewer to the nuances and passions of the photographers themselves, and often give a glimpse of the difficulties associated with the capturing of ‘street’ work. The essence of this sometimes controversial art form is to discover the ability to observe and document society as it is, unpredictable, random, spontaneous...and as in any art form, many aspects need to come together to provide the viewer with a ‘memorable’ portrayal of the genre. This is the first exhibition held by Sydney Street Photographers. Curated by Sandra Kozleuchar. - See more at: https://www.headon.com.au/exhibitions/urban-collective#sthash.aGVNl8Qy.dpuf
