"To discover work as rich as Lora Webb Nichols is a wonder, but to produce a book as perfect as 'Encampment, Wyoming' is a miracle." Alec Soth

Encampment, Wyoming: Selections from the Lora Webb Nichols Archive 1899-1948 features Nichols’ own work and the images by amateur photographers she collected in the early 20th century as the proprietor of a photofinishing business in southern Wyoming. Culled from over 24,000 photographs, the book provides a dynamic visual window into the social, domestic, and economic aspects of the American Western frontier and captures an elusive sense of place through the images of this community of friends, families, and strangers.
