Photographer Henry Horenstein will give a lecture discussing his life and work during the past 40 years. A student of Harry Callahan and Aaron Siskind, Horenstein will highlight his early interest in history and how it has impacted his photography. He will show images from several photographic and book projects, covering a variety of subject matter from country music stars, jockeys, funny looking relatives, animals and burlesque queens.
Horenstein has published more than 30 books, including the classic textbooks: Black and White Photography, Beyond Basic Photography, Digital Photography and Make Better Pictures; and monographs: Racing Days, Animalia, Humans, Show, Close Relations, and his most recent updated edition of Honky Tonk: Portraits of Country Music, which he will feature in his lecture. Horenstein’s photographs are collected and exhibited internationally. He lives in Boston, Massachusetts, and teaches at Rhode Island School of Design
