The Art of Bill Henson

This is the first time that Bill Henson has allowed TV cameras into his life and this short documentary offers audiences in Australia and overseas rare access to one of Australia’s most important artists.
We see Henson as a creature of the night. There is not a lot of light in his life, he photographs by night and spends most of the day in his darkroom meticulously labouring over his prints, studying them reworking minute sections for the right balance of colour and light, venturing out occasionally for a bite to eat.
