The Light Fades But the Gods Remain (Signed Slip Case Edition) | Author: Bill Henson
In this stunning collection, renowned Australian photographer Bill Henson, returns to his home suburb of Glen Waverley to create a reflective, referential and ethereal take on suburbia featuring his iconic play with light and form. This limited edition has been signed by Henson, making this an especially impactful gift.
Commissioned by Monash Gallery of Art, Henson's new work shows an environment that appears to have slipped out of linear time. His photographs are sumptuous and resplendent in their grandeur, offering a view of what is 'just down the street', but seems to come from another age. When contrasted with his iconic Untitled 1985/86 series on the same subject matter, the two series provide a glimpse into Henson's brilliant mind as he ponders the passing of time.
The Light Fades but the Gods Remain celebrates an extraordinary artist at two stages in his career. The publication includes extracts by various authors who have had an impact on Henson, as well as text by Monash Gallery of Art Senior Curator Pippa Milne.
