About Henry Horenstein
Henry Horenstein has worked as a photographer, teacher, and author since the early 1970s. Born in New Bedford, MA, Henry Horenstein studied history at the University of Chicago, before turning to photography. Horenstein earned his BFA and MFA from Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in 1971 and 1973 respectively, studying with Harry Callahan and Aaron Siskind. His over 30 books include monographs (Animalia, Honky Tonk, Close Relations, Humans, Creatures, Aquatics, Canine, and Racing Days) and some of the most widely used instructional texts in the field (Black & White Photography, Beyond Basic Photography, Photography, and Color Photography). The second edition of his book Honky Tonk has just been released. In it, Horenstein documents the changing world of both country music and American Culture through images of its stars and its fans and the places where they meet. A professor at RISD, Horenstein lives and works in Boston, MA.
