Joyce Tenneson: A Life in Photography

1968-2008
By Joyce Tenneson, With an introduction by Vicki Goldberg (Hardcover Book, 2008)
Joyce Tenneson is one of the leading photographers of her generation. Her work is published regularly in magazines worldwide, including Time, LIFE, Esquire, Newsweek, and The New York Times Magazine. She is the author of ten books, including the bestselling Wise Women. Through her workshops and lectures, Tenneson has made a tremendous impact on thousands of professional and amateur photographers. This is the first retrospective overview of Tenneson's thirty years in photography, showcasing her best work from the series Flower Portraits, Light Warriors, Illuminations, Wise Women, Amazing Men, and Intimacy, as well as unknown early photographs, self-portraits, and writings. Tenneson's portraits go beyond a surface recording of her subjects' likenesses. Her signature images -- studio portraits that wrap the sitter in an ethereal glow -- attempt to show the inner person behind the facade. "I want to allow others to reveal and celebrate aspects of themselves that are usually hidden," Tenneson has said. Joyce Tenneson: 30 Years in Photography will be an illuminating walk through the life and work of a unique talent in contemporary photography.
