About the work
Joyce Tenneson
American, b. 1945
Follow

Joyce Tenneson is an accomplished American photographer best known for her mystical and sensual photographs of the female form. At once haunting, enigmatic, and evocative of dreams and forgotten memories, her painterly photographs celebrate human beauty while discovering new archetypes. In her portrait work, she uses the camera as a way of capturing the sitter’s presence rather than simply their likeness, revealing things about the person that are usually kept private. “My camera is a witness,” she has said. “It holds a light up for my subjects to help them feel their own essence, and gives them the courage to collaborate in the recording of these revelations."
