Lux Et Nox

Author(s): Bill Henson

Photography

Internationally renowned photographer Bill Henson is a passionate and visionary explorer of twilight zones, between day and night, nature and civilization, youth and adulthood, male and female. Bill Henson's photographs of landscapes at dusk, of the industrial no-man's land at the outskirts of our cities, of androgynous girls and boys adrift in the nocturnal turmoil of adolescence are painterly tableaux that continue the traditions of romantic literature and painting. The rich chiaroscuro, the oscillating light, and the masterful composition of his photographs map enigmatic states that escape rationalism's iron grip, providing a much-needed antidote to a culture that increasingly looses itself in a numbing vortex of blinking screens and glittering surfaces.
