I just returned a few days ago from Sydney and the Head On photo festival … My head is still spinning, so much to process & share… I had too much of a good time! Hard to tear myself away, knowing that it’s all continuing for another 3 weeks…
I met so many wonderful people, a diverse bunch of photographers and other industry folk. With so many openings, almost every night, i caught some great exhibitions and drunk way too much red wine : ))
It all started with a trip to meet my printer Warren Macris. It’s the first time ever that i’ve had to work with a printer long distance… Going to check the exhibition prints was a nerve raking experience, but to my immense relief Warrens’ reputation is well-earned. He’s a master printer and i was delighted with the results.
Next it was over to Global gallery to hang my Postcards from Home exhibition. An exciting part of the whole process, to walk into an empty space and start spreading your prints out on the floor and eventually seeing a few years work going up onto the walls. Global gallery has several rooms, all showing photographers work as part of the Head On Festival. My neighbours were Ying Ang, Natalie Grono, Eliza Gregory & Kelly Ann Denton. The togetherness and support between photographers helped make the exhibition for me.
