Henry Horenstein will take you through his 40-year journey as a photographer, author, and teacher, beginning with his days studying history at the University of Chicago and then transitioning to photography under Harry Callahan, Minor White, and Aaron Siskind. Horenstein wrote his first of several influential textbooks on photography soon after, when he was 26, and he will talk about that. His background in history influenced his photography, and most of his work has been documentary. Horenstein will show finished and unfinished projects in that vein. This will include work from the reissue of a revised edition of his 2003 book, HONKY TONK, work that is featured in the current show at the Norton Museum. There will even be some metaphoric work on animals and the human body, from his mid-career work. Expect historical videos, country music, and a surprise (on screen) guest.
