Blogging from A to Z Challenge: G is for…Laura Gilpin (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2020 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Laura Gilpin (1891-1979) was an American photographer most well known for her photos of Native Americans, but also for her sweeping Southwestern landscapes.  I love her images of life and a time long gone.

“Laura Gilpin applied compassion to the relationship between the landscape and the native people, a trait that distinguished her from most male landscape photographers of the West. Many still regard her as the only significant woman landscape photographer of her time.” (

Here are a couple of her images, in the public domain.
