Dave Tacon: Shanghai Decadence with Chinese Characteristics

Where
Bondi Pavilion
Bondi Pavilion
Queen Elizabeth Drive, Bondi Beach NSW 2026
When

Every day, all day Thursday 12 November to Sunday 6 December

Today, Shanghai is one of the most exciting and stylish cities on the planet, as well as one rife with contrasts and contradictions. Young people, whose grandparents starved in the famines of Mao’s Great Leap Forward and Cultural Revolution, flaunt their new-found wealth under the gaudy lights of nightclubs.

Many believe this wealth and love of excess apparent in Chinese society is the birth of the Chinese Dream.

Shanghai-based photographer Dave Tacon is a two-time Walkley Award winner whose work has been widely published and is held in permanent collections across Australia. 

After delivering the first online festival in the world in May, attracting 80,000 visits, Head On Photo Festival returns with a printed festival of quality photography this November. 

Visit beautiful and topical exhibitions in open spaces and galleries around Sydney.
