The Book

Bill Henson is one of Australia’s leading contemporary artists. His powerful and evocative photographs approach the painterly and the cinematic, bringing together the formal and classical with the sensual.

This publication presents a selection of images, compiled by the artist, which includes sublime landscapes, nudes and classical sculpture shown in museum settings. Henson’s nudes show his subjects as self-contained, focused on internal reveries; his landscapes are photographed at twilight – that transitional moment at the end of each day; and his museum images juxtapose graceful marble statues against the transfixed visitors observing them.

Beautiful and unforgettable, his images capture a universal essence and enliven our own sense of being.
