about Cira Crowell

Cira Crowell is a photographer and artist whose work spans conceptual, adventure, landscape, cultural, documentary, and humanitarian themes. Her passion for black and white photography began thirty years ago with her grandfather’s film camera and darkroom work. She still uses many of the same forty-year-old lenses in her current digital workflow. 

Cira travels the world, capturing evocative incidents of life and light to share in books, shows, talks, and online. Her journeys include Nepal, Bhutan, India, Japan, Germany, and Iceland. Her adventures include over 1,000 miles on foot in the Himalayas, as well as summiting Mt. Rainier, Mt. Fuji, and Cholatse, a technical, 21,130ft/6,446m peak in the Everest region of Nepal.

Her most recent project as expedition photographer and Executive Producer of “Dream Mountain” film, was honored as Best Mountain Film at London Mountainfilm Festival 2020. When not abroad, she teaches close to home at the Santa Fe Workshops.
