Velvet nights. Bill Henson has a way with light, with the manipulation of shadow and the ambiguity of landscapes. He takes the ordinary and makes it ethereal through his lens – a master of the dark arts and the avid documenter of the human condition for the last 40 years.
Scanlan Theodore and artist Bill Henson continue their creative relationship with photography series Oneiroi. Priceless artefacts from the Melbourne Hellenic Museum’s Gods, Myths & Mortals exhibition take on new significance through Henson’s lense, in his adept manipulation of light and shadow.
