During his last year, he acquired an intense interest in photography. He attended Pratt Institute, where he received my MFA (Photography) in 1991.

Jane S. Noel, Tag Sale and Other Stories: The home is an archive of memories. But each family member has their own catalog. What happens when the family home is disbanded and the archive is no longer intact? In December, Noel's mother moved from the home where she had lived for 47 years. It was her task to clear what remained, a job most often done alone. Noel had the honor of studying Photography with Judith Joy Ross and graduated from Moravian in 1978. She continued her studies earning an M.A. from George Washington University and an M.F.A. from Vermont College of Fine Art.
