Joyce Tenneson is world-renowned for her ethereal, insightful portraits that personify the divine feminine-portraits which evoke both power and mystique. For this volume of new work, Tenneson traveled extensively around the United States, photographing women who are over 65 years old, in a conscious effort to dispel the myth that growing older is a time of decline. The result is, as the subtitle affirms, 'A Celebration of Their Insights, Courage, and Beauty.'
