Annie Leibovitz - WOMEN
award-winning photographer Annie Leibovitz celebrates the rich and varied
roles women play in society at the dawn of the new millennium. Here are
the celebrity photos -- Jodie Foster, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Elizabeth
Taylor -- for which Leibovitz is perhaps best known, but they stand alongside
stunning depictions of less famous women -- an astronaut, a rancher, a
dancer, an architect -- whose contributions to the world we live in are
no less valuable for being less celebrated. Susan Sontag contributes an
insightful and thought-provoking essay.
A book of
photographs; a book about women; a very American project: generous, ardent,
inventive, open-ended. It's for us to decide what to make of these pictures.
After all, a photograph is not an opinion. Or is it?

FLOWER PORTRAITS NEW - April 2003 Following the tremendous success of her book of portraits, Wise Women, acclaimed photographer Joyce Tenneson now turns her lens to the life of flowers. In this enchanting series of photographs, Tenneson breaks new ground by recording the often unseen and overlooked later phases in a plant's life, and finds exquisite beauty in their blossoming and gradual decline. These stunning portraits celebrate the life cycle and allow the reader to appreciate flowers in a new way, as well as contemplate the poignancy, fragility, and continual beauty of life itself. Tenneson's photographs follow in the long tradition of botanical illustrations of the 18th and 19th centuries as well as photographic masters such as Man Ray, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Irving Penn. Just as Tenneson's Wise Women chronicled the energy, vitality, and beauty of older women, FLOWER PORTRAITS offers a compelling look at the radiant and exquisitely individual metamorphosis of flowers in the later phases of their lives. www.Amazon.com
- Editorial Reviews WISE WOMEN A celebrations of their Insites, Curage
and Beauty Book Description In ancient times, older women were the keepers
of primal mysteries and were revered for their special wisdom. For this
very special book, Joyce Tenneson traveled throughout America to photograph
and interview women ages 65 to l00. What she found was a revelation-women
who were vital, energetic, and deeply beautiful, inside and out. The 80
portraits are of women from all walks of life from the famous, such as
Sandra Day O'Connor, Julie Harris, and Angela Lansbury, to the ordinary,
such as our mothers and grandmothers. Tenneson's compelling and compassionate
portraits, accompanied by short poignant statements from these remarkable
women about the experience of aging, will help to reawaken us to the power
and wisdom of our elders.
so often an artist comes along who defies the easy labeling that curators
and critics feel obliged to stick on everything under their rapacious
gaze. In spite of lacking obvious inspirations and role models, these
artists manage to create deeply felt, radical works that an extraordinary
number of viewers respond to with fervor and pleasure." - (Karl-Peter
Gottschalk, photography critic, on Joyce Tenneson) Tenneson is among the
most respected photographers of our time, and has been described critically
as "one of America's most interesting portrayers of the human character."
Her work is a combination of portraiture and mythology-she is interested
in discovering the archetypes of our being.
