Laura Scarf – Arizona Highways Collection
Mexican Poppies with Periwinkle
Named in honor of photographer Laura Gilpin.
In 1903, Laura Gilpin got a Brownie for her 12th birthday—a Brownie camera, that is. She combined her newfound hobby with her love for the outdoors, which proved rewarding, as she became one of the West’s most prominent landscape photographers. Gilpin’s determination to capture the spirit of the land was tireless. “I…am willing to drive many miles, expose a lot of film, wait untold hours, camp out to be somewhere at sunrise, make many return trips to get what I am after,” she wrote in 1956.
Gilpin’s earlier professional photographs were soft-focused, emotional pictorials influenced by her studies at the Clarence H. White School of Photography. Later, she developed her own documentarian style, particularly when photographing Native American cultures such as the Navajo. Fellow Arizona Highways photographer Ansel Adams recognized Gilpin as having a “highly individualistic eye”. She was an avid photographer until her death in 1979 at age 88.
