2020 Vision: the Head On Foundation’s latest photographic project
As part of a larger project to acknowledge the challenges that arose throughout the course of 2020, the Head On Foundation has called on NSW photographers to submit images that portrayed how communities were affected by the events of 2020, with a selection of the images set to feature in a travelling exhibition that opens on May 1.
Some of the events pictured in the final line-up include: the ‘Black Summer’ bushfires and the devastation it left in its wake; the Covid-19 pandemic and the way it changed the way we think about ‘normal’ life; and the onset of social unrest as more and more people took to the streets to demand social change in our society.
Commenting on the quality of entries, Head On’s Artistic Director, Moshe Rosenzveig OAM shared, “The Head On curatorial team had the difficult task of selecting only twenty images for the exhibition. We received photos that were astounding, humorous, shocking, heartbreaking. We thank all photographers for sharing glimpses with us of what must have been very profound, distressing, life-changing experiences.”
As a touring exhibition, 2020 Vision will be on show in NSW’s Southern Highlands in May, the Central Coast in June and back down in Sydney in November for the Head On Photo Festival 2021.

Additionally, the works set to be featured in the exhibition will also be printed into a 96pp hardcover photo book, which will be available for purchase via the Head On Website.
