A Portrait of Hornsby is an exciting collaborative exhibition put together by Hornsby Shire Council and Northern Sydney Institute of TAFE, Hornsby College for the national Head On Photography Festival. Students were assigned different locations throughout Hornsby Shire to photograph using a contemporary photographic technique called High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI).

This technique allows for a greater dynamic range between the lightest and darkest areas of an image. HDRI increases the range of light intensity found in real scenes, from direct sunlight to faint starlight. Images are captured by way of layering differently exposed pictures of the same subject matter.

The resulting exhibition provides a portrait of Hornsby that is artistic, gritty and hyper real. This is not a traditional celebration of Hornsby Shire. Rather, it is a study of the areas of Hornsby that are not always acknowledged for their beauty. The students, armed with this new technology have brought the forgotten architecture and urban landscape to life. It is the northern edge of Sydney like you have never seen it depicted before.
