Art Blogging: Joyce Tenneson

Joyce Tenneson (1945- ) is an American photographer. Born in Boston, she grew up at the convent where her parents worked. She has been widely published in American media, particularly for her portraiture, and currently lives and works in New York City.

Maesie Murphy, 83. From Tenneson's collection Wise Women, which is a celebration of the wisdom of elderly women, once valued more highly in human societies than it is today.

Cheryl, 1997. There is something particularly beautiful about a pregnant woman, which I think that Western art has discovered only in the past century.

Old Man and Deanna, 1987. From a collection known as Transformations, Tenneson juxtaposes contrasting dualities. Here, old age and youth.
