LAURA GILPIN PHOTOGRAPHIC PUBLICATIONS

LAURA GILPIN, American photographer, daughter of cattle rancher Frank Gilpin (Horse Creek, near Austin Bluffs, Colorado) and wife, Emma Miller, April 22, 1891.  Gilpin was given her first camera — a Kodak Brownie — in 1903.  From that point, her intrigue with photography grew.  She printed her first autochrome in 1908 and continued her study in this field and in 1916 she moved to New York.  Her photographic education was interrupted in 1918 after contracting a serious case of influenza.  Emma Gilpin hired a nurse, Elizabeth Warham Forster, for her daughter, who became Laura Gilpin’s companion for the next fifty years.  Laura Gilpin’s photographic career continued until her death, November 30, 1979, the majority of work having been done in Colorado and New Mexico.
