Head On Photo Festival
The 8th Annual Head On Photo Festival is on from the 5th to the 20th May.
This is a perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in a diverse and often controversial photographic festival and broaden your outlook.
I find spending a weekend in the city and wandering around participating galleries and finding obscure installations helps to rejuvenate the creative senses.
