Joyce Culver, photographer, artist and teacher for over 25 years, is based in NYC and Greenport, NY. She divides her time between working as a fine art and commercial photographer, and teaching on the college level. Recent work, "A Change of Mind: An Alzheimer's Portrait" was exhibited at the Albuquerque Museum of Art in New Mexico in 2003. The photographs are a personal memoir of her father, who suffered through the disease, and the effect on her mother and family. A 40 page catalog accompanies the exhibit, with interviews and information about Alzheimer's disease.

Psychology and the spiritual nature of the photograph in visual communication are primary concerns in her work. Prior portfolios include her substantial portrait work including portraits of same sex couples, corporate and celebrity portraits, and portraits of friends. Additional portfolios include Coney Island in the late 1980's, Lulu, her pet bird, and color landscapes, "The Secret Soul of Things."

Her photographs have been exhibited both nationally and internationally in over 70 group and one-person exhibitions, including the National Portrait Gallery, the International Center of Photography, White Columns, and others. Her work has been widely published in books including Exploring Color Photography, The New Color Photography, The Arc of Love, The Siskind Variations, Insights: Self-Portraits by Women, Photography in the 1990's, and Butch/Femme, among others. Grants from Polaroid and the New York Foundation for the Arts have supported her work which is included in public and private collections of MOMA, Polaroid Corporation, The International Center of Photography at the George Eastman House, and others.
