Charlotte Fairchild (1876–1927) was an American photographer. Married to wealthy Bostonian John Cummings Fairchild in 1898, she initially had no interest in becoming an artist. However, after the sudden death of her husband in 1915, she had to support her three children, and needed a career. She moved to New York to start her successful art career as a photographer.
The New York Times featured a series of her photos on October 20, 1918 in support of a patriotic World War I campaign. The publicity brought Fairchild to national acclaim as a photographer. The artist’s photos could be found in theatre and fashion magazines alike, including Vogue and Vanity Fair. Her society portraits included Broadway stars such as Ethel Barrymore, Ina Clare and Irene Bordoni.
