Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Editta Sherman (b. 1912, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is an Italian-American photographer, often referred to as the "Duchess of Carnegie Hall," since she lived and worked in Carnegie Hall Artist Studios for over 60 years. Originally formed as a diverse artist enclave and bohemian work-live rental studios to financially support Andrew Carnegie's struggling concert hall, Editta's home from the 1940s until 2010 allowed her to be part of a unique artistic community of neighbors. Her life's work consists of thousands of historical large format 8 10 negative camera portrait images taken of celebrities, writers, poets, models, sports heroes, politicians, and many others (including many of the famed former tenants of Carnegie Hall).
