Legendary photographer Bill Henson has released a new book featuring a collection of previously unseen photographs taken in 1976.

The series shows Henson’s recognised and celebrated style, capturing the delicacy, magnetism and celestial nature of the ballerinas, that is both bewitching and disturbing. When photographing the dancers, Henson found himself fascinated by the faces, which were ‘lost to the world, absorbed in the dance’. He was drawn to the idea of a spirit of an individual in a space.

Particle Mist by Bill Henson is available now, published by Stanley/Barker.
