About Joyce Tenneson

Internationally lauded as one of the leading photographers of her generation, Joyce Tenneson’s work has been published in books and major magazines, and exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide. Her portraits have appeared on covers for magazines such as Time, Life, Newsweek, Premiere, Esquire and The New York Times Magazine.

Tenneson possesses a unique vision which makes her photographs immediately recognizable. She creates enigmatic and sensuous images that are timeless and haunting.
— Vicki Goldberg (critic and author)

Tenneson is the author of sixteen books including the best seller, Wise Women, which was featured in a six-part Today Show series. She is the recipient of many awards, including Fine Art Photographer of the Year in 2005 (Lucie Awards), and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Professional Photographers of America in 2012.

In a poll conducted by American Photo Magazine, readers voted Tenneson among the ten most influential women in the history of photography. Tenneson is currently working on a new book of her unpublished 20”x24” Polaroid one-of-a-kind photographs.

She is represented by Dowling Walsh Gallery on Main Street in Rockland, Maine.
