"Obscura Gallery represents the estate of Paige Pinnell, who passed away in 2017 and leaves behind a strong legacy as a photography dealer, artist, educator, and collector. Paige’s deep knowledge of and connection to photography on a national level had influence on many in the local Santa Fe community in the 1960-70s and was integral to what would become the development of the photography market in Santa Fe at that time." - Jennifer Schlesinger
