Joyce Tenneson ‘Trees of Life’ exhibit opens in NOLA on Jan. 16

A Gallery for Fine Photography of New Orleans will host “Trees of Life,” an exhibit of the work of Joyce Tenneson, beginning Monday, Jan. 16. Her work will be on view at the French Quarter gallery through Wednesday, Feb. 29.

According to the gallery, “Trees of Life” addresses the relationship between trees and humankind, in a way that harks back to anthropologist Sir James George Frazer’s ‘The Golden Bough,” a comparative study of religion and folklore. The new works are mixed media, involving a fusion of photo prints and gold leaf.

Tenneson, who lives and works in New York, has studied photography and worked in the medium for more than four decades.

She received the Infinity award for Best Applied Photography from the International Center for Photography in 1989, the Photographer of the Year award from Women in Photography International in 1990 and the 2005 Lucie Award for Photographer of the Year. Her photographs have been published in 16 books.

A Gallery for Fine Photography is located at 241 Chartres Street in the French Quarter. An inventory of the “Trees of Life” exhibit can be found at its website.
