Carol C. Carlisle | Landscapes

Carol C. Carlisle (1924-2011) epitomized the artistry behind the art: As the Managing Editor of Popular Photography magazine nearly 35 years she was celebrated for her keen eye and unswerving sense of perfection. During her career, she preserved more than 1200 about-to-be-destroyed photos, at that time of mostly “unknowns.” But history has shown these photographic treasures were created by titans of early professional photography and that Carol Carlisle saved their work from oblivion. Here we see some of the more riveting landscape photographs she preserved, including works by Mario Giacomelli and Arthur Rothstein, as well as other leading 20th century photographers.
