Exhibition lays bare historic soul.

A photographic exhibition at Woodford Academy, a National Trust property, in September will lay bare the soul of the oldest collection of buildings in the Blue Mountains, revealing the colourful history which played out on the property.

The collection of black and white images by Blue Mountains photojournalist David Hill gives a revealing interpretation of the collection of buildings which makes up Woodford Academy in the mid-mountains village.

Based at Springwood, Mr Hill is a former newspaper photojournalist with a unique eye for poignant architectural, human and landscape portraiture.

"I’m always in search of depth and soul and try to make an emotional connection beyond the superficial with every subject, whether it be food on a plate, a person with a story to tell, light on a landscape or an architectural work like Woodford Academy", he said.

"Life is a continuous stream of fleeting nuances and it’s a constant challenge to capture as many as I can".

"The use of black and white photography to capture the essence of Woodford Academy made sense for me because the land and the buildings have a complex past, influenced by so many events and characters and black and white printing tends to show more subtlety and tone without the distraction of colour".

"Hopefully my interpretation of Woodford Academy reflects the many shades of grey between the contrasting black and white tones".

Mr Hill also photographed the property at night to capture another dimension of its character. "The pop of the streetlight and the slick new highway running next to this stoic sandstone old timer is such a juxtaposition yet is so in keeping with how our modern community lives alongside and within such tangible reminders of the past".

"Woodford Academy is not just a few old buildings on the side of the highway – it is a living entity that has a story to tell and a relevance to us today, and the volunteer management committee is doing an excellent job in ensuring that story is told and exploring ways in which to realise that relevance locally and nationally".

The images included in the exhibition will be for sale. David Hill will also donate one of the works to the Woodford Academy collection.

Meet photojournalist David Hill from 1pm – 2pm on Saturday, September 10. Email woodfordacademy@gmail.com for more information.
