Photographs from Henry Horenstein’s series “Honky Tonk: Portraits of Country Music” will be on view at Endicott College’s Walter J. Manninen Center for the Arts through October 17th, 2014.

Honky Tonk is a collection of photographs taken between 1968 and 2010 that document the changing world of country music and its fans. Shot in bars, music ranches and famous venues like Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, Horenstein not only shows us the performers on stage, but also the dedication and love the fans have for the performers and the music. Horenstein began this project at a time when he saw the world of country music changing and wanted to capture it as it was before it turned into the big-business that it is today.
