Willie Carson (photo-journalist)

Willie Carson (16 July 1926-1996) was a Northern Irish photo-journalist. He was born in Derry. His photographs were published throughout the world at the height of The Troubles; his discretion and integrity earned him the respect of both sides in the conflict. His funeral was attended by John Hume and Martin McGuinness, and Ian Paisley led tributes to him in the Belfast Telegraph following his death in 1996.

Carson was an author of several books about life in Derry and a definitive collection of his photographic work named after his first book of 1976 - Derry Thru The Lens: Refocus - was published in 2006 by the Guildhall Press.
