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.

Mridula Amin is a Dhaka-born Australian photojournalist and reporter. Her work focuses on themes of migration, identity and social justice in the Asia-Pacific region. She became a member of Oculi, Australia's leading collective of photographers in 2020.

Julia Coddington is a photographer from Austinmer, NSW. She is co-founder of the Unexposed Collective, an online platform featuring female and non-binary street photographers and an administrator of @womeninstreet, an international community of female street photographers.

Lyndal Irons is a Sydney-based photographer and writer focused on local reportage interested in seeking out parts of Australian society that are familiar, accessible, yet not often closely encountered.
