Pamela Joye


Born in Northeastern Pennsylvania, Pamela Joye moved to Oklahoma City in the late 1980’s and attended the University of Oklahoma where she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in photography. Following, she pursued graduate studies at Oklahoma State University where she earned a Master of Science in Event Management and moved to Seattle where she managed events for a variety of high-tech companies including Microsoft. She married in 2005, then moved to Salem, Massachusetts in 2006.

Returning to photography full time in 2010 with an interest in documentary and street photography for private commission, Pamela has also continued to create fine art imagery that’s layered, poetic and symbolic. She has studied with renowned documentary photographer and artist Mary Ellen Mark, acclaimed street photographer David Carol and Deb Schwedhelm, who was a 2012 Photo NOLA Review Prize recipient. Her work has been included in a number of juried fine art exhibitions and group shows including the Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, CO, PhotoPlace Gallery in Middlebury, VT and A Smith Gallery in Johnson City, TX. In addition to work for private commission, Pamela also created a series of books carried by the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts.
