Bruce Horowitz works within a tradition of photography that readily distinguishes the medium from other forms of art production. The tradition is the faithful recording of ordinary life as it passes by.

When asked to describe his work, he replies, 'My photography of the last 9 years has evolved into a labor of mystery, patience and faith. I pass through various settings responding to visual/emotional stimuli. This ephemeral process renders photographs that are about specific people and places, but depict universally human issues. My photographs, direct and simple, are as complex as people and society. They are personal revelations made in public.'

Horowitz received an NEA Photography Fellowship in 1975, a CAPS Photography Fellowship in 1977, and a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1983-84. His work is included in several collections including The Museum of Modern Art in NY, and the George Eastman House in Rochester, NY.
