Overview

Photographer Henry Horenstein has a unique vision of the natural world. His abstract views create intense, sometimes provocative, and yet always revealing portraits of animal life.

In these 57 photographs, creatures of the deep sometimes shimmer in dappled sunlight, sometimes appear as ghostly forms half-hidden by murky waters, and other times boldly face the camera with incredible and delightful expressions. In Aquatics, a ray seems to fly as it flaps its underwater wings, while a whale's tail-captured close up-takes on powerfully graphic proportions.

Printed in tritone reproduction, Aquatics is a magnificent companion to the exhibition of the same name, which begins its tour of the United States at the Edward Carter Gallery in New York City, November 2001.

Author Biography: Henry Horenstein is the author of more than two dozen books for adults and children, including the acclaimed Creatures (Stewart, Tabori & Chang). His textbooks, such as Black and White Photography (Little, Brown), are widely used in college and art school classes throughout the United States.
