Kentucky Waterfalls by Craig Gibson

Honourable Mention – Personal

Craig Gibson’s series is a celebration of the ever-divisive hairstyle – the mullet. “Kentucky Waterfalls was shot at Mulletfest 2020, a three-day mullet festival held at the Chelmsford Hotel in Kurri Kurri, New South Wales, Australia,” says Gibson.

“The town was hit hard by the downfall of the coal-mining industry in the early 1960s and has since struggled to recover. Now with Mulletfest in its third year, the town welcomes people from all over the world to participate and spectate in the celebration of the polarising haircut. The festival is high energy and loud, fitting the self-identified stereotypes of ‘bogan’ culture. These images are of some quieter moments.”
