Henry Horenstein. Horenstein has worked as a photographer, teacher, and author since the early 1970s, his career as a teacher started at Harvard in 1974. He is an author of over 30 books, including many monographs (HONKY TONK, HUMANS, CREATURES, AQUATICS, CANINE, RACING DAYS). His newest book, CLOSE RELATIONS, recently published by powerHouse Books, is a collection of photographs he made as a student studying under Harry Callahan and Aaron Siskind at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). His textbooks have been widely used by hundreds of thousands of photography students over the past 30 years. Horenstein lives in Boston where he continues to photograph, exhibit, publish, and teach at RISD, where he is professor of photography. He is known for being one of the most influential photography educators in the United States.

Dr. Juliet Hacking. Dr. Hacking is the Programme Director of the MA in Photography (Contemporary and Historical) at Sotheby's Institute of Art in London. The MA is unique in that it allows students to study photography entirely as a branch of art history and visual culture, while also developing their skills of professional practice (as curators, gallerists etc). . Juliet joined the Institute in 2006 from Sotheby's auction house (London) where she was the Head of the Photographs Department (from 2003). Prior to joining the auction house as a cataloguer in 2000, she worked as a researcher at the National Portrait Gallery (London). She was the curator of the N.P.G. exhibition Princes of Victorian Bohemia: Photographs by David Wilkie Wynfield and wrote the accompanying book (NPG/Prestel 2000). She trained as an art historian at the Courtauld Institute (B.A., M.A., PhD) specialising in nineteenth-century British photography, and has taught as a Visiting Lecturer at the Universities of Derby and Reading and at the Courtauld Institute.

Saving The Arts Project!

The Arts Project is in serious trouble and may be forced to close its doors!  If this is your first time hearing this news, please read this article from the London Free Press published Thursday:  http://lfpress.ca/newsstand/News/Local/2007/12/13/4721994-sun.html

This is horrific news to many of us who depend on The Arts Project for performance, exhibition and work space. The Arts Project offers all emerging artists and performers opportunities we can't find elsewhere in this city, and we need to fight to keep it alive here in London.

If you have been personally affected by The Arts Project and want to show your support, please write to all city councilors stating the importance of TAP by early Monday or before. Keep it positive and brief (these words from Judy Bryant) stating how important this place is to us, how a vibrant downtown is vital, London is a great place that needs this.

Monday at 5:00 at City Hall there will be a meeting about the Arts Project's fate in the gallery. Please come and show your support. I know I personally will be there regardless of the weather.

If you're unable to attend, and missed the writing deadline, please consider making a donation to The Arts Project… they need community support in all ways now more than ever.
