ARTalk: Joyce Tenneson, A Life in Photography

The SE Center for Photography and Greenville Center for Creative Arts invite you to spend an evening with Joyce Tenneson, A Life in Photography, Friday, November 10, 2107, 7 PM.

This will be a unique opportunity to see work from Joyce Tenneson’s 40 year career in photography. She will show images from her retrospective book titled “A Life in Photography” as well as give insight to her multi-faceted career as one of the top portrait photographers working today. She will also show a behind the scenes powerpoint showing some of her assignment work and never-before-seen 20x24 inch Polaroids. The audience will have the opportunity to ask Tenneson about her working process and how she has been able to engage her subjects to create her signature “intimate portrait” style.

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. Tenneson is the author of sixteen books including the best seller, Wise Women, which was featured in a six-part Today Show series. She is the recipient of many awards, including Fine Art Photographer of the Year in 2005 (Lucie Awards), and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Professional Photographers of America in 2012. 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, Stockholm, Sweden, mounted a retrospective of her work which was seen by approximately 30,000 people. Tenneson’s work has been exhibited in museums around the globe and is part of many private and public collections.
