Laura Gilpin grew up in rural Colorado and received her first camera, a Kodak Brownie, for her twelfth birthday in 1903. She was educated at eastern boarding schools and on her first trip east she stopped in New York City to have her portrait taken by Gertrude Kasëbier, who later became her mentor and lifelong friend. She also studied photography at the Clarence White School. Gilpin is well known for her landscapes of the American West. She died in 1979.
