Henry Horenstein: Honky Tonk – Portraits of Country Music
April 23rd – May 31st

Opening Reception/Book Signing: Thursday April 23rd, 6:30-9pm

Honky Tonk is a collection of photographs taken between 1968 and 2010 that document the changing world of country music and its fans. Shot in bars, music ranches and famous venues like Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, Horenstein not only shows us the performers on stage, but also the dedication and love the fans have for the performers and the music. Of the Project Horenstein says, “all along, in my historian’s mind, I always saw this as a disappearing world that I wanted to preserve on film.” As such, Horenstein began this project at a time when he saw the world of country music changing, and wanted to capture it as it was before it turned into the big-business that it is today. “I expect that everyone will remember mega stars like Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash, but I wonder: Will they remember Kitty Wells, Ernest Tubb, or, for that matter, Hillbilly Tex? These pictures were made in hopes that they will,” says Horenstein
