Head on photo festival captures George street activation space

5 May 2016

There’s even more reason to visit George Street this week, with a new pop-up photo exhibition kicking off today in the Light Rail Activation Program space.

CBD Coordinator General Marg Prendergast said the latest exhibition will showcase the talents of international photographer Natan Dvir, who is part of the 2016 Head On Photo Festival.

“As work continues along George Street, we’re making way for more pop-up activity to support CBD businesses and this exhibition will encourage visitors to celebrate the diversity of Sydney,” Ms Prendergast said.

“We are really excited about the increased space for pedestrians along this section of George Street and visitors will be able to enjoy more seating and appreciate the artistry of local and international photographers.”

The outdoor exhibition, in partnership with City of Sydney, features 13 images from the “Coming Soon” series created by the Israeli New York based photographer.

It will be on display until Sunday 22 May in the Light Rail Activation Program space on George Street, between King and Barrack streets.

Head On Photo Festival Director, Moshe Rosenzveig, said this year’s festival will exhibit the captivating talents of local and international artists.

“We have some incredible exhibitions from photographers from all over the world this year,” Mr Rosenzveig said.

“These exhibitions represent some of the best work we’ve seen by professional and emerging photographers and we’re so pleased to be showcasing some of them in the Light Rail Activation Space.”

“We encourage all Sydneysiders to check out George Street and the CBD over the next few months and not miss the inspiring art on display,” Ms Prendergast said.

The Light Rail Activation Program space is on George Street, between Martin Place and King Street, until 18 June 2016 and includes a diverse range of activities and exhibitions for those visiting the Sydney CBD.
