New Additions to the AP/RC: Anne Noggle

Before becoming a professional artist at the age of 43, Anne Noggle had been a pilot in WWII and had served as a captain in the Air Force during the Korean Conflict. Amelia Earhart was an early hero, the airplane her early love. She began take pilot lessons when she was 17. After the wars and time spent as a crop duster, Noggle went to college at the University of New Mexico where she says she “fell passionately in love with another machine, the camera.”

Presented here are selections from a recent donation of works from her namesake foundation. Her self-portraits capture the aging body she inhabited, with no care for modesty or embarrassment and lots of attention on observation and character. Her portraits of others, especially older individuals, capture the same degree of unadorned honesty. In other works she references her friends, heroes and mentors, often in a playful manner. The Anne Noggle Foundation donated 43 silver gelatin photographs ranging from 1970 to 1987.
