Lee Marmon's Contribution to American Culture

Marmon has given the Laguna culture of yesteryear something that their forebears did not have: A legacy of faces and names that are truly human. That human face is Lee Marmon's gift to his culture, and to us.

Here is 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 Online Store.

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 variations.

Eagle Dancers

One of Lee Marmon’s earliest photographs, this dramatic shot shows the traditional Laguna tribal ceremony from above.

"It was Fiesta time on the Laguna Plaza," Lee Marmon recalls. "All day, there is dancing by various groups. The Laguna tribe excelled at the Eagle Dance. They were always considered to be among the best."
