“Though most photographers are driven to find a new vision, even the best fail more often than they succeed. In [these images], Horenstein has succeeded to a dazzling degree, evading the abundant clichés of animal photography at every turn.”—Owen Edwards
ANIMALIA is a collection of the best of noted photographer Henry Horenstein’s images of sea and land creatures. Described variously as evocative, mysterious, romantic, surprising, and weird, Horenstein’s abstract images will make the viewer see otherwise familiar animals in a new and different light. Printed in sumptuous sepia duotones, ANIMALIA will make an elegant gift book for the animal or photography lover among your friends and family members.
Horenstein’s ANIMALIA photographs will be on view at the Harvard Museum of Natural History (www.hmnh.harvard.edu) though summer 2008. The exhibit will then tour nationally at a variety of museums and other venues through the traveling exhibition company art2art (www.art2art.org).
