The Henson Case

David Marr

The Australian Prime Minister called them ‘absolutely revolting’. Their removal from a Sydney art gallery was hailed by the Daily Telegraph as a ‘Victory for Decency’. Cate Blanchett and members of the arts community claimed charges laid over them would affect Australia’s cultural reputation. Only now do we have the opportunity to hear the full story behind the Bill Henson photographs, which grabbed national attention in May 2008 when 20 images were removed from an exhibition and the photographer was investigated for child pornography. David Marr, author of Dark Victory and the award-winning biography Patrick White- A Life, examines the pornography/art debate with exclusive interviews with Bill Henson, members of the NSW police force, child abuse campaigners and important figures in the Australian arts scene.
