World Photography Day

Today we celebrate World Photography Day, an annual, worldwide celebration of the art, craft, science, and history of photography.

Between Two Worlds: The Photography of Lee Marmon is a photography exhibition at Albuquerque Museum featuring one of the first professional Native American photographers. Marmon’s passion for photography began with the world around him and this continued throughout his career. Marmon photographed moments and places inaccessible to anyone outside the Indigenous community. He also had direct access and relationships with the people he photographed, allowing him to develop a connection in his work. Situated between Indigenous and western cultures, Marmon had access to both.

Between Two Worlds was curated by the Albuquerque Museum and is on view through Jan. 15, 2023.
