The story of this book, first published by Scalo in 2002 and sold out the following year, reprinted / republished by Thames & Hudson in 2008 (as stated in the copies offered).

A controversial book, because it includes nudity of teenagers and yound adults, but an impressive body of work and a splendid book about and the limits that are pushed, about teenagers wandering and trespassing the barriers, about a search of darkness and a dark side, a book about coming of age...

Bill Henson colors teenage nights like a master

Really beautiful images where the bodies and the faces look like they are out of a Rembrandt or a Goya painting, and where the night is thick and magical.
