Bill Henson Photography Exhibition

Is it a devil or a genius? Bill Henson is a controversial artist in Australia, and some people call him the greatest photographer in Australian history. The content of his works are mainly portraits, and he is best at expressing people's indifference and alienation. There is a sense of cinema in his works. Under his camera head, both the landscape and the characters have a strong sense of mystery, and the light and dark contrast brought by a few light sources outlines the theme.

His photography exhibition is at level 2 of NGV, a free exhibition at the Australian Photography Festival. The themes include portraits, nudes, luxurious museum interiors, and translucent landscape photos. It feels good to see the works of this famous photographer when I come to the NGV art ocean on the weekend.

time:Before October 8, 27am-10pm

地点:NGV International, 180 St Kilda Rd
