Claude "Pop" Laval, often known simply as Pop Laval, was an American Photographer during the first half and middle of the 20th century who specialized in documenting California's San Joaquin Valley and Sierra Nevada mountains, particularly featuring Fresno. As a prolific photographer producing approximately one hundred thousand negatives, his 55 year legacy features people, and not just scenic photography.
