From Angie Kordic’s review of the exhibition “Histories: Tales from the 70s” for Widewalls:
A tireless photographer and educator, Henry Horenstein has an eye for the things and the people around him. During the time of broad social and political changes in the US during the 1970s and beyond, he documented the change in the air, aiming to provide a vivid portrait of regular folk that were a crucial part of the culture. The photographer and his camera were regulars at local horse races, burlesque shows, and country music gigs, all of which were meticulously captured on film and placed within separate monographs that Henry Horenstein published over the years. Apart from taking pictures of the outside, he also spent time within the circle of his family, immortalizing the moments that he shared with its members.
