ABOUT THE JUROR:
Born in New Bedford, MA, Henry Horenstein studied history at the University of Chicago, before turning to photography. Horenstein earned his BFA and MFA from Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in 1971 and 1973 respectively. Horenstein's over 30 books include mono- graphs (Animalia, Close Relations, Honky Tonk, Humans, Creatures, Aquatics, Canine, and Racing Days) and some of the most widely used instructional texts in the field (Black & White Photography, Beyond Basic Photography, Photography, and Color Photography). Photographs from his book Honky Tonk: Portraits of Country Music 1972-1981 were exhibited at the Smithsonian Museum of American History in 2006 and The Museum of Rhode Island School of Design in 2007. His 2007/2008 solo show at the Harvard Museum of Natural History, Looking at Animals, is traveling internationally, as is Honky Tonk. His current photographs, Show, on the worlds of burlesque, fetish, drag, and sideshow, will be published this fall. A professor at RISD, Horenstein lives and works in Boston, MA.
