By Andrea Juan, curator of the show in Argentina (*)
The series "Animalia” of American photographer Henry Horenstein invites us to look with new perspective. With his lens that captures essential and distinctive elements of animal species on land and sea, in a game he proposes for us to rediscover. Performing a thorough analysis of its forms and often playing with abstraction, the images have a striking effect, almost fantastic. The figure without is environmental space suspends the animals without time, in a deep profound silence, in mysterious ways that invite the unequal experience of appreciating each detail. “Animalia” conforms Phase I of Tributo cycle that with the work of Henry Horenstein, promises a successful launch in Argentina
