About

Darcy Eveleigh is a picture editor and author based in the New York Metro area. 

Her experience includes 13 years as a photo editor at The New York Times and more than 20 years in visual communications. In 2007, her passion for archival photography lead to the creation of The Lively Morgue, an archival picture series utilizing The Times' vast historical photo collection. The feature started as an occasional post on the Times' popular Lens blog and in 2012 it expanded to Tumblr allowing viewers the option to see the back side of each photo. It currently has nearly a quarter million followers. 

In 2016, Darcy co-authored a series called "Unpublished Black History" for The New York Times. The month long feature showcased unpublished photos of African American History found in The Times' archives. The series had over 1.7million readers and ten thousand reader responses. 

The series was published as a book titled "Unseen" by Black Dog and Leventhal in October 2017.
