From Loring Knoblauch’s review of “Histories: Tales from the 70s” for Collector Daily:
Henry Horenstein’s photographs from the 1970’s celebrate the subtle quirkiness of American life. The eccentricities and marginalia found in his pictures aren’t as intense or extreme as Diane Arbus’ subjects were, but there is a certain kinship between the two artists in their engaged interest in everyday oddity. From a family dog wearing a knitted hat and sweater to a salesman with an oversized cowboy boot, Horenstein had a consistent eye for the small weirdness of the overlooked, and he followed that rich vein of culture from Massachusetts to Tennessee.
