Henry Horenstein (born 1947, New Bedford, Massachusetts) is an American artist/photographer. He has worked as a professional photographer, teacher and author since the early 1970s. A student of photographer/teachers Harry Callahan, Aaron Siskind, and Minor White, Horenstein is the author of over 30 books, including a series of photographic textbooks that have been used by hundreds of thousands of students over the past 30 years.
In 2003, Chronicle Books published Honky Tonk: Portraits of Country Music, Horenstein's documentary survey of country music during the late 1970s and early 1980s. W. W.

Honky Tonk has also been presented as an exhibition at many other public and private museums and galleries, notably the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History in 2006, Rhode Island School of Design Museum in 2005, The Annenberg Space for Photography in 2014.
In recent years, Horenstein has been working on short documentary films. His Spoke (2014), a celebration of the Austin, TX dance hall The Broken Spoke, was funded by The Annenberg Foundation and screened at the Austin, Alexandria, Chicago International Movies and Music, Julien Dubuque film festivals, and many other venues.
Horenstein lives in Boston and is professor of photography at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). His work is represented by Clampart, New York; Carroll & Sons, Boston; Verve Gallery, Santa Fe; Catherine Couturier Gallery, Houston; and Gallerie Vassie, Amsterdam.
