Head On Photo Festival comes to Watt Space in 2018

Friday, 6 April 2018


Coming up at Watt space – HEAD ON STUDENTS held in conjunction with the Head On Photo Festival, an exhibition of UON student work curated by Clare Weeks and James Murphy

If a picture paints a thousand words... then what sort of a story could be told with three photographs or a 30 second video sequence?

This thesis was posed to students from the University of Newcastle, recent Alumni, and current students of Newcastle Art School (TAFE), and it is their response that forms the basis for HEAD ON STUDENTS. PhD candidate Clare Weeks and Photomedia lecturer James Murphy have curated this inaugural photographic media exhibition, which is the first time the prestigious Head On Photo Festival has come to Newcastle.

Established in 2008, Head On is a non-profit organisation which promotes the work of photographers through all stages of their careers and provides a bridge between Australian and international industries, touring worldwide and encouraging excellence and innovation in Photography.
