For the second year running Starleaton has proudly lent their support to the Head On Photo Festival that took place in Sydney last month. The Head On Foundation is a non-profit organization that offers a platform for photographers of all experience and background.
Throughout the month of May they held over 180 events, from large scale print installations on the streets of Sydney, to local gallery exhibitions.
Starleaton was pleased to provide a range of materials, including our Heytex Premium banner and Phototex self-adhesive textile to help create a number of installations.
Historically a sign and display company, Starleaton has become active in the photography space since the 2016 acquisition of DES. CEO Ben Eaton admits that it’s been a challenge “overnight we entered a brand new market - even though we have some incredible experts on our team, and we’re distributors for industry leading brands such as Hahnemühle, there was no real awareness of the Starleaton name.”
As a result Starleaton has become involved with a number of events, most recently the inaugural Aperture Photography Conference which welcomed over 600 professional photographers.
However, it was the Head On event that had particular poignancy for Eaton “photographers are known for their attention to quality, something that Starleaton also prides itself on, so to see traditionally sign and display materials, such as our Heytex banner material being showcased in such a demanding way is real validation of the calibre of our product.”
