Shoot What You Love

Henry Horenstein will take you on a walk through his career as a professional photographer, educator, filmmaker and author since the 1970s. While he's done many things during that time, including authoring over 30 books, he has always tried to stay true to the words of his mentor, Harry Callahan,  when studying at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD)—“Shoot what you love.” This is also the title of his recent memoir. (He also studied with legendary photographers/teachers Aaron Siskind and Minor White). Among the things Henry loves most is honky tonk music, horse racing, burlesque, and dogs, and he's made work and done books on all these subjects and more. He will show this work, tell stories, and even premier snippets of his latest movie: Partners: A Celebration of Choice. Henry's work is widely collected and exhibited, including this summer's exhibition of Honky Tonk at the Newport Art Museum. He is professor of photography at RISD and lives in Boston.  Promises to be one of our most interesting, informative, and entertaining programs!
