Photographs by Bill Henson
Bill Henson has returned consistently to the orchestration of available light, and in particular of twilight, using it to create a kind of modern mythology.

I believe his work is based around recalling the feelings from his memories of times past and i think that is clear in these shots shown above. I am a fan of all Bill Henson's work. I think he has 'the eye'.
