Join Curator of Photography Micah Messenheimer this Thursday, August 4, for a presentation on the landscape work of acclaimed 20th century photographer Laura Gilpin in the collections of the Prints & Photographs Division. The talk will highlight Gilpin’s craft, stylistic changes, and the range of sites, subjects, and people she photographed in the 1920s and 1930s, many of them in the American Southwest.
We hope Gilpin’s striking picture of San Francisco de Asís Mission Church in Taos, New Mexico will inspire you to watch and learn. For those unable to attend the live session, the recording will be made available on the Library of Congress website.
