Book signing and talk with Henry Horenstein at CLAMP
On 12.02.2023, Henry Horenstein will be signing copies of his newest book “We Sort of People” at CLAMP from 4 to 6 PM. He will also join co-author, Leslie Tucker, for a talk during the event.

Journalist and writer Leslie Tucker and photographer Henry Horenstein began working together in 1997, when she invited him to Maryland to shoot a mysterious multi-ethnic family, the little-known Wesort clan: “We sorts are different from you sorts.” The project started as a genealogical search for a family whose roots stretched back to the founding of the first Catholic colony. It grew into a mystery about the multi-ethnic origins of America, then became a race against time as the Wesorts and their descendants disappeared and their stories died. While Horenstein photographed the last generation of Proctors and their disappearing world, Tucker recorded the conversations she had with the wise women of the family. A living archive emerges with voices that portray the complex realities of their lives in their own words, as seen through their eyes.
