About the Artist

Carol C. Carlisle (1924-2011) epitomized the artistry of the editor during her nearly 35-year career as Managing Editor of Popular Photography magazine, where she was celebrated for her keen eye and unswerving sense of perfection. During her career, she preserved more than 1,200 about-to-be-destroyed photos, largely by then “unknowns,” but which history shows are photographic treasures that she saved from oblivion.
