Bill Henson

b. 1955

Bill Henson was only 19 when his photographs were first exhibited at the National Gallery of Victoria in his home city of Melbourne. Over the ensuing 20 years he has held more than 35 solo exhibitions around the world; all major Australian galleries have acquired his work; and he was the Australian representative at the Venice Biennale of 1995. He is an internationally respected photographer who explores themes of transition and the energies and textures of the subconscious in his work; from landscapes to portraits.
