Carol Macomber was born in 1938, in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. She received her B.S. from Lawrence College, Appleton, Wisconsin, in 1960. Carol does black-and-white photography and alternative processes and is deeply concerned about nature. Her work is shown in the Artisan's Gallery in Iowa City, BlueStem Gallery in Parkersburg, Campbell-Steele Gallery in Marion, and Henry W. Myrtle Gallery in Cedar Falls.

Carol has this to say about her work, " My background includes work in biology and photography. The cyanotype photograms that I make involve local botany and simple photochemistry. The antique technology lends a degree of authenticity that I find lacking in modern technologies and presents a dramatic way of seeing some
remnants of the past."
