Description
After a career as a Women Airforce Service Pilot, an airshow pilot, and a crop duster, Anne Noggle settled in Albuquerque, New Mexico and enrolled as a freshman at the University of New Mexico (UNM) at age 38. While studying art history, Noggle took a photography class and loved it, later saying that watching a photograph develop in the darkroom was almost as exciting as flying an airplane. In her early work from the late 1960s and early 1970s, Noggle is engaged in a search for subjects. She starts out close to home, making pictures of her neighborhood and places she encountered while driving between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, such as this rest area.
