Synopsis: Sometimes, but very rarely these days, one can announce a real discovery in contemporary photography — a book that will emphatically place its author on the international map on the same level as such giants of photography as Robert Frank and Nan Goldin. After the international success of Lux et Nox Scalo is proud and excited to announce the definitive mid-life retrospective book on Australian artist Bill Henson. The book combines all groups of work that Henson has created up to the present: from his early Ballet pictures (1974), to his body and nude portraits (1977–1986), from his photographs of street-crowds (1979–1982) to his Baroque Triptychs (1983–84), from his fantastic combinations of pictures taken in the Australian Suburbs and Egypt (1985/86) to his Los Angeles and New York nightscapes (1987–88), from his famous cut-out collages shown at the centenary Venice Biennale in 1995, to the portraits of adolescents and his magical color compositions for the Paris Opera (1990/91), and, most recently, a haunting selection of his images of children adrift in the wilderness of night (1997-2004), many of these appearing for the first time. Bill Henson is a continent in photography to be discovered. This book will be one of Scalo’s major contributions to the understanding of contemporary photography. Published on the occasion of the artist’s retrospective at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, opening January 2005 and touring to the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne in April.

Essays by Judy Annear, Jennie Boddington, Edmund Capon, Dennis Cooper, Peter Craven, Isobel Crombie, John Forbes, Michael Heyward, Alwynne Mackie, David Malouf, Bernice Murphy, Peter Schjeldahl, and an interview with Bill Henson by Sebastian Smee.

Book Description Scalo Verlag AG, Zurich, 2005. Quarto; hardcover; 501pp., monochrome and full-colour illustrations. A few score marks to dustwrapper (now professionally protected by superior non-adhesive polypropylene film). Near fine. Postage quoted is for a standard format octavo book. Final charges may vary depending on size and weight. Mnemosyne accompanied an exhibition assembled by the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney. It is a sumptuous collection of 30 years of work by an artist whose images have been variously described as obsessive, provocative, unsettling, opulent, and luminous. The photographer's broad subject matter includes dark portraits that evoke the work of old master painters, shifting between intensely black shadows and glowing light; controversial nude studies of adolescent models; and landscape and cloudscape. His portraits and figure studies raise questions about identity and the various selves - public and private - that his subjects assume; some of the most fascinating photographs feature individuals isolated amid crowded city streets. As Edmund Capon writes, ' His images in the sheer potency of their intimations remind us of just how extraordinary and poetic the ordinary can be; of how familiar roads, suburbs, factories and people especially in the changing light of dusk and the dead of night, can become charged and powerfully intimate for Henson and for us. It is the opportunity of uncertain mystery and emotive fulfilment he evokes in his images that speaks to us above all else, for as he says, "the object in my work is not necessarily the subject".'.
