Sydney based contemporary artist Liam Benson uses queer identity to gently subvert social perceptions of gender, race, culture, sexuality and national identity. He deliberately mines the language and communication formats of contemporary advertising and popular media to document his performances as both still photographs and video.

Liam Benson won the 2011 Hazelhurst Works on Paper Prize for his photographic self portrait A Christian Country. The prize, which is valued at $20,000 was judged by artist Ben Quilty. Liam was also the winner of the 2011 Contemporary Award in the Fishers Ghost Art Prize and winner of the 2011 Mardi Gras Art Prize.

His solo exhibition as part of Head On Photography Festival will feature new works which have never before been exhibited.
