About Bill Henson
Bill Henson is a widely acclaimed Australian contemporary photographer. Henson has exhibited extensively. Both in his native Australia since his first solo exhibition in 1975 at the age of 19. Which was at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne. As well as this his work has been exhibited internationally.
Henson’s photographs explore themes of the Romantic movement. Such as the Sublime in contrast with intimacy found in the everyday moment. So, His use of chiaroscuro and a reduced palette coupled with a tendency to underexpose creates images that recall Flemish still-lifes and the works of Caravaggio. Henson, who describes his subject matter through shadow as much as through light. Therefore, he manages to evoke a sense of uncertainty and beauty, not only in his figure studies but also his photographs of seemingly banal landscapes such as those in his Suburban Series.
