Bill Henson

I have been familiar with Bill Henson's work for quite a long time and I have been loving it ever since the first time I saw him. His unique way of creating loneliness and desirearound his subjects is probably the main reason why I am so touched by his work. Henson's photographs are romantic and the space he creates for his subjects is always veiled in dim and mystic light.
You may be familiar with his work because of the controversy that led to his show in May of 2008 being shut down and the images seized to what some people thought was child pornography.
