Head On Photo Festival 2021 People’s Choice winners announced. 

Head On Photo Festival 2021’s talented pool of photographers produced a diverse collection of stunning works that all captured, in one way or another, the incredible year that was 2021. Themes of perspective, isolation, and resilience are a profound connection throughout the works, and the winners of the 2021’s People’s Choice Portrait, Landscape, and Student categories underscore how deeply impactful and resounding these international themes are to all of us. 


People’s Choice Portrait Award winner

The Portrait award was taken out by this poignant image by Ebony Allen-Ankins entitled Wish you were here 

Over 24 hours into a complicated labour, a mother wishes her fourth baby’s father was there to hold her hand. 


People’s Choice Landscape Award Winner

The People’s Choice of Landscape photograph goes to Diana Nicholette Jeon’s haunting work Under Construction 

This series is about the destruction of the beautiful lands in Hawaii in the ever-increasing pursuit of income from tourism and overdevelopment. Archival pigment print with coloured pigment on translucent vellum overlay to disrupt the landscape. 


People’s Choice Student Award Winner

And the winner of the People’s Choice Student photograph is the enigmatic work of Talia Skuse entitled Through her eyes 

Dyslexia is often misunderstood as a disability resulting in negative emotional consequences due to the stigma attached to this condition. Using my passion for photography and my own experience with dyslexia, I have created a composition that invites the audience to view life through my eyes. I use perspective to convey my heightened sense of seeing the world and the emotional consequences of dyslexia, including isolation and negative self-perception.
