Head On 2015 is just around the corner, well, almost, next May!


We are calling on photographers around the world to exhibit as part of Head On 2015.

You have until 12 October 2014 to submit an exhibition application. We are looking for coherent and cohesive bodies of work. With an open theme, if your work is strong we want you to exhibit.

To gauge the quality of work we are interested in, check out previous years’ featured shows.
