The photography of Bill Henson

February 26, 2014

Bill Henson is a prolific Australian photographer. He is primarily known for his work with adolescents, which addresses sexuality and gender in a beautifully ambiguous manner. The bodies seem to be floating in endless space, illuminated in a dramatic light. These photographs could easily be cinematic stills. Henson’s lush images also contain tension due to their controversial portrayal of young adults.
