To coincide with International Women's Day, our next Head On Spotlight features 3 outstanding Australian female photographers; Julia Coddington, Mridula Amin and Lyndal Irons.
Head On is proudly inclusive and gender-equal. We are delighted to deliver this Head On Spotlight to show our support for and solidarity with International Women's Day (IWD). The overarching theme of IWD this year is #ChooseToChallenge - to call out gendered actions and assumptions, to challenge gendered stereotypes whilst promoting a gender-equal mindset and celebrating women's achievements.
All these women have challenged stereotypes and assumptions through their careers and creative practice. We will gain insight into their experience as a woman in the industry, discuss the role of photography collectives and the purpose of all-female collectives and explore their incredible work.
Join us for what is sure to be a fascinating conversation.
