About the Exhibition
Between 1970-77, Henry Horenstein took medium format photographs of his family, neighbors and friends – first, in the SouthCoast areas of New Bedford and Dartmouth and, later, in Greater Boston, where his parents moved.

Organized as a component of the NBWM exhibition and oral history initiative, Common Ground: Community Stories, this exhibition presents an intimate and photographically compelling look at life in the SouthCoast in the early 1970s.
