Juror Joyce Tenneson: Haunting, ethereal, mystical, – all of these words describe the photographic style of Joyce Tenneson.  Her photos command a complex and intense emotional response from the viewer, which has made Tenneson one of the leading photographers of her generation. Vicki Goldberg, critic and author, writes of Tenneson: “Tenneson possesses a unique vision which makes her photographs immediately recognizable.”  Her work has appeared on covers for magazines such as: Time, Life, Newsweek, Premiere, Esquire and The New York Times Magazine. Tenneson is the author of seventeen books including the best seller, Wise Women.  “Radiant Beings: The Magical Essence of Flowers” is the third in a trilogy of books on the life cycle of flowers.
