Event Description

Join us for an evening with Lee Marmon. This is an open event. All are welcome!

We will be showing a trailer of the a new video chronicling his life, entitled "True Tales of the Blue-Eyed Indian" and select portraiture work will be on display in the rear gallery. There is also a possibility we will be previewing the full documentary.

Come out, meet Lee, and enjoy these amazing images of a time long past.

Deemed a cultural treasure, Lee's work was purchased by the University of New Mexico in 2009.

“Lee’s photographic work [not only] spans over 50 years of documentation of both the people and sites around Laguna, but also other events that occurred along old Route 66,” Kelly says. “His collection runs the gamut of activities during the last half of the 20th century.” Marmon not only documented intertribal celebrations, the uranium mining industry, and his own family—which has been part of New Mexico history for more than 150 years—but he also took a number of celebrity photographs during the latter half of the 20th century when he worked as a commercial photographer in Palm Springs, California." -Michael Kelly, director of the University of New Mexico Center for Southwest Research (http://www.cowboysindians.com/Cowboys-Indians/March-2012/Lee-Marmon/)

APG has been honored to represent Lee for over a year now. We have a great selection of his work available for viewing and purchase. Resultant of the sale of his negatives to the University, Lee is no longer printing. Thus, many of these are the last prints of these images that will ever be available. They are spectacular and not to be missed.
