Photographer Bill Henson has withdrawn from the Adelaide Biennial in a travesty of artistic independence and natural justice.

Adelaide has two brands: the staid conservatism of the 'City of Churches' and the vitality of 'Festival City'. Despite its small population and the competition of bigger fish coming from behind, the South Australian capital maintains a thriving arts scene. The Adelaide Fringe still sees off its eastern rivals and the Art Gallery of South Australia under Nick Mitzevich has established a creative contemporary hanging policy.
