Bill Henson 'Untitled' 2008/09

The acclaimed Australian photographer has curated this exhibition of 23 of his own works, as part of the NGV Festival of Photography

Bill Henson's photography is cinematic and painterly at the same time. The low-lit frames of landscapes and people often feel like they're stills from a scene – part of a greater narrative – while the deployment of chiaroscuro is reminiscent of the 17th century masterworks of Caravaggio.

For the NGV's Festival of Photography, Henson is curating an exhibition of 23 works that spans his still lifes of sculpture, his portraits, and his sublime landscapes.
