Anne Nog­gle: My­self as a Teenager

Pasatiempo - - PASA WEEK -

1984, gelatin sil­ver print

New Mex­ico Mu­seum of Art, 107 W. Palace Ave., 505- 476-5072 The mu­seum’s ex­hi­bi­tion As­sumed Iden­ti­ties: Pho­to­graphs by Anne Nog­gle spans the ca­reer of a pho­tog­ra­pher who of­ten made her­self the sub­jects of her works. Nog­gle (1922-2005) was a pho­tog­ra­pher, pi­lot, pro­fes­sor, and poet who co-cu­rated the in­flu­en­tial ex­hi­bi­tion Women of Pho­tog­ra­phy: An His­tor­i­cal Sur­vey in San Fran­cisco in 1975 with pho­tog­ra­pher Margery Mann. She earned her pi­lot’s li­cense while in high school at a time when there were few women pi­lots and served as a ser­vice pi­lot in World War II. “There is a re­sem­blance, I think, be­tween fly­ing and pho­tog­ra­phy,” she once said. “Both are done alone, in con­cept any­way, and both re­quire in­de­pen­dence and op­ti­mism, and some dumb courage.” The show opens Fri­day, April 1, with a re­cep­tion at 5:30 p.m. En­trance to the show is by mu­seum ad­mis­sion (there is no charge the first Fri­day of the month from 5 to 8 p.m.).
