Hurstville Museum & Gallery is presenting a unique photographic exhibition from 9 August – 31 August 2014 titled ‘As My City Sleeps’.

Mayor of Hurstville, Cr Jack Jacovou said the photographic exhibition will focus on greater Sydney after dark.

“The exhibition features stunning light paintings and long exposure images of some of Sydney’s most iconic locations including; Sydney Harbour Bridge, Opera House, Luna Park, and La Perouse,” he said.

“Michael Turner is a most talented photographer and creates his images by using a number of different techniques, including layering multiple images on top of each other, lighting steel wool on fire and experimenting with the camera lens.

“I invite everyone in the community to come along and explore this wonderful exhibition.”

The official opening of ‘As My City Sleeps’ will be held at Hurstville Museum & Gallery, 14 MacMahon Street, Hurstville, on Saturday, 9 August at 1.00pm. All welcome.

The exhibition will run until 31 August 2014

In addition, prints from the photographic exhibition will be available for sale.

Mayor Jacovou said Council is committed to promoting arts in the Hurstville community.

“The Hurstville Museum and Gallery regularly presents art by individuals and groups from a diverse cross-section of the community,” he said.
