Description
Photographer, curator, and professor Van Deren Coke was a founding member of the Art Department at the University of New Mexico and one of Noggle’s teachers as well as her adviser. Here she disguises herself as Coke, which she says was “a lot of fun,” imitating and perhaps teasing her mentor. “What is consistent, and, I do believe, unique about her pictures is their humanism combined with her frankness about aging,” Coke wrote in the introduction to “Silver Lining” (1983), a book of Noggle’s photographs.
