“Bill Henson is a visionary explorer of twilight zones, between nature and civilization, youth and adulthood, male and female and night or dusk. His photographs are painterly tableaux that continue the traditions of romantic literature and painting. Henson’s elegant, formal photographs – of battered landscapes and fragile, wispy youths – resemble nothing so much as Flemish still-lifes; rarely has colour photography captured so profoundly the furry texture of night time.”—Publisher’s website, https://www.editionsbessard.com/product/bill-henson-limited-edition-signed-c-print/ 15 August 2016.
