Work by David Vickery.

Haunting, ethereal, mystical — all of these words describe the photographic style of Joyce Tenneson. Her photos command a complex and intense emotional response from the viewer. Tenneson’s images are a mysterious alchemy of sensuality and spirituality lit in an almost otherworldly glow. Vicki Goldberg, critic and author, writes: “Tenneson possesses a unique vision which makes her photographs immediately recognizable.”

Internationally lauded as one of the leading photographers of her generation, 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 a s Time, Life, Newsweek, Premiere, Esquire and The New York Times Magazine.

Tenneson is the author of 17 books, including the best seller “Wise Women,” which was featured in a Today Show series. She is also the recipient of many awards and, in a poll conducted by American Photo Magazine, readers voted Tenneson among the 10 most influential women in the history of photography.

The Lucie Awards named Joyce Tenneson as Fine Art Photographer of the Year in 2005, and in 2018 she received the Lucie Award for Outstanding Achievement in Portraiture. In the Fall of 2014, Fotografiska Museum, in Stockholm, Sweden, mounted a large retrospective of Tenneson’s work. In 2021, Tenneson was inducted into the International Photography Hall of Fame.
