Bill Henson

Bill Henson (born 1955 in Melbourne) is an Australian art photographer. Bill Henson's works provoked a controversy; at one of his exhibitions, police found images of nude teenagers. Police first wanted to charge Henson for child pornography, but then did not.[1][2] Instead, the exhibition was rated "parental guidance". This means that people under 16 should be accompanied by their parents.
