Item description for Humans: Photographs by Henry Horenstein by Henry Horenstein, Robert Flynn Johnson, Murray Dubin, Rahaab Allana, Tasneem Zakaria Mehta, Scott Preissler, Diane Thompson & Steve Thompson...

In this exquisitely produced book, Henry Horenstein explores the landscape of the human body in his unique photographic style. Large prints, grainy and soft in focus, witness the noted photographer's observant eye: Close-up details of body parts, like a beautifully shaped upper lip, an elbow, wrinkles, and hair gain a new lyrical, intimate quality. However, Horenstein's sensuous images never give way to aesthetic perfection, instead they are surprising, sometimes weird, and even odd.

Reviews - What do customers think about Humans: Photographs by Henry Horenstein?

Big and bold  Mar 27, 2008
Horenstein has put together a fascinating visual study of the human animal. These photos are all large, one per over-sized page or even one photo per two-page spread. Then, within this large format, most photos present enlarged views of a body part rarely seen at that scale. For example, an eye fills a two-page spread and creates a remarkable presence. One toe expands across the whole height of a page. Even intimate details grow to monumental proportions, until their scale and perspective make their origin on the human body hard to identify.

If you ever needed examples to show how beauty differs from prettiness, Horenstein's documentary imagery gives all you could want. A few pictures even show startling divergence from magazine-cover beauty. These photos, with their intense focus, remind the viewer that every detail of a person deserves attention and respect, as part of that person's whole. Warmly toned B&w reproduction, delicately textured grain, and gorgeous printing only reinforce that impression: these subjects have inherent value, even when they aren't pretty in the normal way.

This book's back cover lies much too close to its front - fewer than 90 pages hold the book's whole imagery, at one photo per page or per spread. Wanting more hardly counts as disappointment, though.
