Joan Gentry began work in photography as a teenager photographing sites of interest in the Albuquerque, New Mexico, area as she explored every aspect of the local deserts and buildings. She made a commitment to serious photography and attended the University of New Mexico where she received a B.A. in Fine Arts. This grand experience opened doors to many types of processes and mind-expanding opportunities working within the Photography Department. As a result, her work has become eclectic, from using the incredible New Mexico light and working with shapes and shadows to mysterious dwellings once inhabited by the Anasazi. She instructed photography classes, participated in juried art shows, and currently is working in the field as instructor in the Anasazi Workshops.
