Bill Henson: The Light Fades But the Gods Remain
Time Out says
The photographer turns his attention to Glen Waverley in this new exhibition
Bill Henson might just be Australia’s greatest living photographer, so you could be forgiven for thinking he has bigger fish to fry than documenting the changes in his own backyard. Not so. As part of a commission by Monash Gallery of Art to celebrate its 25th anniversary, the acclaimed photographer has produced a new body of work dedicated to the suburb of his childhood and adolescence, Glen Waverley. The artist first documented Glen Waverley in his early ‘suburban series’ Untitled 1985-86 (also featured in the exhibition), and 30 years later, his new work revisits the series and reflects upon the notions of home and belonging.
