Carol C. Carlisle was one of the great talents of the 20th century – and hardly anyone knew her name. But they knew the names of photographers whom she helped to make famous as the first female managing editor of Popular Photography magazine – including greats such as Richard Avedon, Berenice Abbott, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Robert Mapplethorpe. Their photos featured some of the century's most iconic images of top celebrities, historical moments, and great artistic compositions. But many of these pictures came to light only after her death, when her family discovered a treasure trove of "rescued" images that she left behind in the attic of her small home in Staten Island, New York. 30 years after she pulled them out of the Popular Photography dustbin, literally, we now get to see some of the many remarkable images in the Carol C. Carlisle Collection. You can see more of the Carlisle collection at POBA | Where The Arts Live, an online arts hub and resource center that displays, promotes and preserves creative legacies, helps folks that own or manage a creative legacy or arts collection to ensure these collections live on, and helps working artists to manage their own works for future preservation, viewing, and value.
