2018 HONOREE: Achievement in Portraiture

 

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. Vicki Goldberg, critic and author, writes of Tenneson: “Tenneson possesses a unique vision which makes her photographs immediately recognizable. She creates enigmatic and sensuous images that are timeless and haunting.

Tenneson is the author of sixteen books including the best seller, Wise Women, which was
featured in a five-part Today Show series. In a poll conducted by American Photo Magazine, readers voted Tenneson among the ten most influential women in the history of photography. In the Fall of 2014, Fotografiska Museum, in Stockholm, Sweden, mounted a large retrospective of her work which was seen by approximately 30,000 people.

In addition to her photography exhibits and books, Tenneson has also taught master workshops in photography cities across the U.S. and in Europe, and enjoys mentoring and empowering others.
