Cross Currents is a recurring series that shares the insightful perspectives of influential individuals on fine art photography.
The series creates a dialogue that emphasizes and expresses the power of art.
We use the concept of “Cross Currents” to illustrate how a significant master in one art or practice can influence a different expression form. For the series, Holden Luntz Gallery connects with gifted individuals outside the discipline of photography and asks them to share their thoughts on a photographer or a body of work and how it has impacted them.
Alice Hoffman on Joyce Tenneson
“Joyce Tenneson’s vision is so unique and glorious that it is simply unforgettable. When I first saw her photograph of Dasha with doves, I fell in love with her work and asked if I might use it on the cover of my novel, The Dovekeepers, the story of women in ancient Judea.
Joyce Tenneson captures the soul of people, and of places, and of nature itself. Her glorious golden trees remind us how precious our world is. The timeless photograph of an ancient and huge tree in the forest is so stirring because, yes, it captures the soul of the tree, but it captures our souls as well.” – Alice Hoffman
