Bill Hornbostel

Brief Biography

Bill Hornbostel, a photographer of landscapes, nature, and architecture based in Port Hope, Ontario, arrived at photography through a roundabout route. Although he had studied painting and drawing as an undergraduate at Bard College in New York state, his path veered into the study of history, and subsequently meandered into teaching and editing. He exchanged the brush and canvas for the camera in that time, but it was only after a stint in graduate school that he made a concerted effort to dive into photography properly. In this endeavour, he has been largely self-taught, but he still recalls his earlier artistic training in his use of the camera.

 

He has exhibited in the Colborne Art Gallery, the Art Gallery of Northumberland, the Visual Arts Centre of Clarington. He has also exhibited in events such as The Artist Project, the SPARK Photo Festival in Peterborough, and The New Art Festival in Ottawa. Bill Hornbostel is represented by the Elaine Fleck Gallery.
