"I love to be around people and interview them and hear their stories. I'm always interested in what lies below the surface of people; when you get below the surface, there's often an archetype."
Described as "haunting," "ethereal" and "mystical," Joyce Tenneson's images have been displayed in over 200 exhibitions around the world and are part of numerous private
and museum collections. Her portraits have appeared on the covers of publications such as: Time, Life, Newsweek, Premiere, Esquire and The New York Times Magazine.
