Before Anne Noggle returned to school in her forties to study photography, she was an aviator and military pilot who flew during World War II and the Korean War and achieved the rank of captain in the US Air Force. Her photographs explore women, sexuality, identity, and the aging process. She once noted that faces are “empty until they reach their 40s. Then they become photographable.” In this work, she captures her one-time partner, Nancy, wearing a male friend’s suit, her face cast half in shadow and gazing warily at the camera.
