Description
This photograph was taken in the Pacific Northwest when Noggle was working on a portrait series in Seattle, Washington, in 1985.
In addition to her career as a photographer, Noggle served as the museum’s first curator of photography, from 1970-75. The first show she presented, in 1971, was of work by California landscape photographer Wynn Bullock, which included his famous 1951 image “Child in Forest,” a picture of his child lying nude in a forest landscape. In her homage to that image, Noggle poses in the forest in the Pacific Northwest, communing with nature not as an innocent but with the wisdom and experience of a mature woman.
