Head On Foundation invited NSW photographers of all genres to submit images that show how they and their communities were affected by the Black Summer', the subsequent flooding, the pandemic, and the general unrest and turbulence in world politics as communities demand ed overdue social change. The submissions were judged anonymously, in line with our mission to provide a fair and equal platform for all artists to create, showcase and gain exposure for their work.

"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" says Head On's Artistic Director, Moshe Rosenzveig OAM.

The exhibition is accompanied by a 96pp hard-cover book which includes all exhibited photographs, plus an extra 20 images from the project. The book is available for purchase from Head On Website. The Covid 19 pandemic hit the arts sector particularly hard Head On Foundation is thankful to have received funding to support emerging and established photographers by providing them artist fees and free exhibition opportunities. 2020 Vision is a touring exhibition, starting in NSW's Southern Highlands in May; the Central Coast in June and Sydney for Head On Photo Festival 2021 in November.
