In Close Relations, noted photographer Henry Horenstein presents his earliest images, made when he was a student at the Rhose Island School of Design. Mixed with humor and history, this collection of family and friends, landscapes, and period imagery, describes a time familiar to everyone, when one moves from adolescence to adulthood – - remaining part of a family while beginning to create a world of one’s own.

As a history student in the late 1960s, Horenstein learned the importance of preserving the present to create a record for the future. As he took up photography, he carried these lessons with him. In Close Relations he offers us a warm and quirky look at his personal history, and at a particular place and time.
