Laura Gilpin (1891-1979) attained international recognition as photographer and her images of the Navajo and Pueblo peoples of the four corners area offer an important record of these cultures. She excelled in a field that up to the point, had largely been the purview of men. Western landscape photographer Ansel Adams praised Gilpin by remarking that she had a “highly individualistic eye.”.
