Joyce Tenneson has studied and worked as a photographer for over 40 years.
Her spirit of invention and exploration is evident in her new project working
with Gold leaf, Photography and images of Trees. Throughout her career, Tenneson
has embraced new concepts, processes and techniques, marrying them with
Ancient Mythologies and Tenets. Trees of Life addresses the relationship between Trees and
Humankind. Joyce Tenneson’s use of trees and gold harkens back to Sir James George Frazer’s “The Golden Bough.”
1989, Tenneson received the “Infinity” award from the International Center for Photography. 1990, she received “Women in Photography International’s “ Photographer of the Year Award and 2005, she received the Lucie Award for “Professional Photographer of The Year.”
Joyce Tenneson’s photographs have been published in 16 books.
