Ms. Tenneson is the author of thirteen books, her latest, entitled Joyce Tenneson: A Life in Photography, was published by Bulfinch Press in 2008. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including the International Center of Photography’s Infinity Award, for best applied photography.

Tenneson’s portraits go beyond a surface recording of her subject’s likeness. Her signature-style images attempt to show the inner person who hovers behind the facade. Says Tenneson: “I want to allow others to reveal and celebrate aspects of themselves that are usually hidden. My camera is a witness. It holds a light up for my subjects to help them feel their own essence, and gives them the courage to collaborate in the recording of these revelations.”
