About Bill Henson:
Henson’s photographic works are distinguished by a Caravaggio-like use of chiaroscuro that he creates with carefully positioned lighting and techniques such as bokeh blurring, flattened perspectives and underexposed negatives. He has exhibited in major Australian and international galleries such as Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Venice Biennale, the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris, The National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, and the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney. Henson’s photographs are held in many international private and corporate collections, as well as the public collections of the Guggenheim, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, as well as the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
