Henry Horenstein: HISTORIES: Tales from the 70’s
Horenstein has been a tireless photographer and educator, always on the move with subjects ranging from horse racing to burlesque to country music. For those that know him beyond his photographs and Basic Manual, you know that he also has a flair for presenting his work within the book format. His monographs include Racing Days, Animalia, Humans, Show, Close Relations, and his most recent updated edition of Honky Tonk: Portraits of Country Music. However, Henry is not done, and his new tome inspires to show the common thread that runs through such an expansive career and eye in photography.
Horenstein’s newest venture “HISTORIES: Tales from the 70’s” aim to chronicle the people and events of the decade. He says, “I hope that this will serve as a chronicle of the past – a snapshot of the time and people who were not famous or rich but were a fundamental part of the culture of the 70s.”
To fully realize this project, Henry has been pursuing a Kickstarter campaign in order to secure the necessary funds for publishing. With only 4 days to go, here’s to sharing in Henry Horenstein’s successes, and a preview for what I know will be a fantastic new edition to his impressive catalogue.
