Joyce Seymore is a photographer working in Wilton, Connecticut.

As an art history major at the University of Florida, she studied under Jerry Uelsmann, who inspired in her a lifelong love of photography and printing.

After her graduation, she moved to New York City, where she worked for the next 20 years in the photography departments of various Time Inc. publications, including TimePeople, and Money, where she was the photo editor.

Between 1975 and 1978, she studied at Hunter College for a Master’s degree in Art History. After the birth of her daughter in 1986, she left Time Inc. to return to her own photographic projects. She studied at the International Center of Photography in New York, and then with Joseph DeRuvo at the Photographers Workplace in Connecticut.

In the winter of 2011, she spent seven weeks as a Visiting Artist at the American Academy in Rome, where she photographed the graffiti, tattered posters, and peeling surfaces of Roman walls. Forty of these photos were included in her open studio at the Academy–From the Walls of Rome: Intimate Abstraction.
