You don’t have to spend money to get a little culture in your life. From now until August 1st the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas will be giving free guided tours each Saturday from 2-3 p.m. The featured exhibit is called In Search of Beauty, a collection of works by Fritz Henle, a photographer whose career spans six decades. Henle’s work includes everything from photo stories to the front cover shots for magazines like Harper’s Bazaar and Glamour. Henle was one of the earliest photographers to contribute to Life magazine and what dubbed by historians to be “the last classic freelance photographer”. While you are at the Ransom Center you can also see the Gutenberg Bible and the world’s first photograph. Not only can you enjoy this activity for free, the Ransom Center is great way to beat the heat as temperatures go up.
