Grosse Bill Henson Monografie mit 180 Abb.. Nach 6 Jahren Arbeit ist ein Bildband mit industriellen Landschaften , Vororten , Sonnenuntergängen und ausdrucksvollen Jugendporträts entstanden.

"Australian artist Bill Henson is a passionate and visionary explorer of twilight zones, of the ambiguous spaces that exist between day and night, nature and civilization, youth and adulthood, male and female. His photographs of landscapes at dusk, of the industrial no-man's land that lies on the outskirts of our cities, and of androgynous girls and boys adrift in the nocturnal turmoil of adolescence are painterly tableaux that continue the tradition of romantic literature and painting in our post-industrial age. " (Book jacket)
