At Head On we are always looking for new ways to support the photography community. We have launched a bookstore dedicated to self-published photographers. Support these photographers and have these stunning images in your home to view any time.

If you are a photographer with a self-published book, please get in touch about listing your book.



Amongst the books available is Wendy McDougall’s Its only rock’n’roll but I like it…. The retrospective of her music photography is perfect for all music fans. Featuring images shot over a 40-year period from 1979 to 2019, it is a fantastic way to revisit some of the most iconic performances and performers. 



Peter Solness’s Lamplight is a celebration of his evocative light-painted photographs. Created during his artist residency at Hill End, NSW, the book demonstrates Peter’s ability to capture the heart of his subjects using the technique of light-painting.



In Heat Paul Blackmore explores the intimate relationship between humanity and water, with Sydney’s eastern suburbs as a backdrop. Paul’s beautiful images capture the sculptural forms of people within the vast and untamed ocean. 



Also featured in the bookstore are Head On’s own titles. The Head On Photo Awards are the heart of the Festival and feature images across Portrait, Landscape and Student categories. See the winners and your favourite images from the Head On Photo Awards in these beautiful catalogues.

Featured as an exhibition in this year’s Festival, Paper Tigers is a celebration of Australian photojournalism. The book includes incredible 60 photographs by 60 photographers, making it the most comprehensive book on photojournalism in Australia. The need for truthful journalism has never been more critical. It is through the lens of these photographers that we understand and experience much of the world’s events. In this book look back at the most critical moments through recent Australian history and the images by which we remember them.
