Who Is Lee Marmon
Who Is Lee Marmon?
Lee Marmon is America’s best known and most widely respected Native
For the past fifty years, Lee Marmon has used the magic and power of his
camera lens to immortalize the noble spirit and enduring legacy of his
elder tribes people in his native Laguna, New Mexico. The passing of
time has turned his prolific collection of rare and high quality
photographs – both portraits and landscapes - into a breathtaking album
of images that he proudly calls, “Visions of My People.”
Lee Marmon was born into circumstances that made him uniquely positioned
among beings to create this great historical tapestry. The accumulated
volumes of his life’s work – thousands of photographs from a bygone
chapter in our nation’s cultural history - comprise a priceless gift to
America. They are the product of the rare confluence of Lee’s ethnic
identity, generational positioning, artistic talent, technological
vision, and his own cultural awareness.
Today, at age 79, Lee Marmon is still driven by his love and passion for
his craft. From his photography studios in Laguna, New Mexico, Lee
personally produces and signs each high-quality print from its original
negative, using time-tested, professional darkroom techniques.
Lee has teamed up with Image Management Associates, LLC to bring you a
limited selection of his best known and most highly acclaimed images.
All are available for immediate purchase, both framed and unframed, or
in wall poster form, in the Gallery Showcase.
Lee’s images are sure to delight and enchant the outdoor lover, the
history buff, the art collector, the cultural sophisticate, and anyone
who embraces a love of the earth and humanity in all of their splendid
Visions of my People: A proud celebration of the Laguna People, and of
American history, talent, culture, and diversity from America’s
best-loved Native American Photographer.
