Backyard - Head On
The BACKYARD Exhibition at Head On Photography Festival was held in April 2013. Incredibly, more than 1,600 visitors passed through the show over the six weekends it was open.
The show was curated by Mobile Photo Network in partnership with Head On Photo Festival. Over, 600 mobile images submitted from all around the world on the theme of Backyard. The final 34 prints selected for the show were excellent quality thanks to the team from ARTHEAD. In fact, the prints, and photographs, were so good that most visitors were unaware that they were taken on a mobile phone.
You can see a gallery of all the finalists photos here and a walk through video of the space below.
The official opening was attended by over 150 people including, the Head On Photo Festival Director Moshe Rosenzveig, Award-winning photo journalist Ben Lowy, Magnum photographers Ian Berry, Eli Reed and Chris Steele-Perkins, Shahidul Alam the director of Chombimela International Festival of Photography and Jeff Moorfoot the director of Ballarat International Foto Biennale.
