Program highlights:

Panel Discussions:

Australian photojournalism | 6pm Sunday 3 May

Join Head On Photo Festival Director Moshe Rosenzveig OAM, journalist Alison Stieven-Taylor and some of the biggest names in contemporary Australian photojournalism. It is through the lens of these photographers that we understand and experience much of the world's events. Look back at the most critical moments throughout recent Australian history, and the images by which we remember them.

Photographing Trauma & Healing | 12pm Thursday 7 May

Traumatic histories, global pandemics, war zones and climate disasters - even when the world is not in the midst of a crisis, people are obsessed with images of trauma. Crises dominate our media and the lives of photojournalists, therefore significantly impacting our own. Join renowned photojournalists, photographers and psychologists as they unpack our obsession with images of trauma and the role of the media in presenting them.

Workshops:
