Head On Photo Festival 2022 at Paddington Reservoir Gardens


Every day, 10am to 5pm Saturday 5 November 2022 to Sunday 20 November 2022

World-renowned Head On Photo Festival, a highlight of Australia's arts calendar, celebrates its 13th year with an electric range of photography from around the world in unique outdoor exhibitions.

The Festival, free and open to the public, comprises over 500 photographers across 107 exhibitions, including the Festival's major outdoor venues - the stunning Bondi Beach, the recently renovated Bondi Pavilion and Paddington Reservoir Gardens.

Annually Head On Photo Festival presents groundbreaking photographic stories that tell stories through photography across all genres, from fine art to photojournalism. Judges select all exhibiting photographers through Head On's unique judging process, in which they judge works anonymously, ensuring a diverse range of stories and equal opportunity.

This year, exhibitions and conversations explore important global issues - the impacts of COVID-19, global conflict, refugees, feminism, motherhood, pop culture, the environment, youth homelessness and gentrification.

The program features unique insights into war, displacement and refugees from two rising stars. Sahat Zia Hero documents life from within Bangladesh's largest refugee camp where he lives and 21-year-old Syrian photojournalist Mouneb Taim, who has been capturing the reality of war-torn Syria since he was a child.
