Joyce Tenneson (b. 1945) is an American portrait photographer. Her work has been featured in magazine covers such as Time, Life, Entertainment Weekly, Newsweek, Premiere, Esquire and The New York Times Magazine. Her mythic images, mostly human figures, are striking and distinctive. Possessing an ethereal, mysterious air, they are timeless and haunting. Tenneson has worked in photography for several decades and is the author of fifteen books. She has been named "Photographer of the Year" by the international organization Women in Photography. Tenneson says of her work: "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."
