“Bert Oldman, 1906” by Lora Webb Nichols

Lora Webb Nichols: Photographs Made, Photographs Collected
September 30 – November 19, 2022

“Lora Webb Nichols (1883-1962) created and collected approximately 24,000 negatives over the course of her lifetime in the mining town of Encampment, Wyoming. Nichols received her first camera in 1899 at the age of 16, coinciding with the rise of the region’s copper mining boom. Given the period of time the collection spans, the isolation of the Encampment community, and Lora Webb Nichols’ gender, this collection of images is unparalleled in its historical significance and visual storytelling. ”
