Joyce Tenneson's mystical, gilded images challenge us to look at nature in a whole new way.
Place has such a profound effect on creative ex- pression that art evolves, often markedly, as an artist’s environment changes. For photographer Joyce Tenne- son, a move from New York City to mid-coast Maine resulted in a drastic shift in her work.
“In New York City, I was working almost exclusively with people,” she says of her famous images of women, which have been featured in international exhibitions, on the covers of magazines like Time and Life and books like Alice Hoffman’s The Dovekeepers, and even in an Absolut vodka ad. “I didn’t want to repeat myself. With every new life you have, things change and you need to find out who you are in that new life.”
