Leica Gallery Boston is proud to present The Secret Garden of Lily LaPalma, a provocative photographic sequence, by artist Maggie Steber. Steber a 2017 Guggenheim Foundation Fellow, was awarded this prestigious grant for The Secret Garden of Lily LaPalma, an ongoing series that embodies Steber’s subconscious captured by her alter-ego, Lily LaPalma.

Maggie Steber will also host a Leica Akademie two day intensive workshop, May 19 & 20, 2018 entitled, Portraits That Tell Stories.
