Olive Pierce, 90, of Rockland, Maine, and formerly of Cambridge, Mass., died May 23 in her home.
Pierce’s photographs ran regularly in the Cambridge (Mass.) Chronicle between 1967 and 1971.
She took photos of students at Cambridge Rindge & Latin School that were published in a 1986 book, “No Easy Roses: A Look at the Lives of City Teenagers.” After that, she spent 10 years documenting a lobster fishing community in Maine and in 1996 had published “Up River: The Story of a Maine Fishing Village.”
Pierce’s photographs also have been featured on the Maine Public Broadcasting Network.
She leaves a son, Laurence; two daughters, Anne and Elizabeth; six grandchildren; a sister.
The obituaries were written, at least in part, from published reports by Bulletin correspondent Nimra Aziz, an undergraduate student in the Northeastern University School of Journalism.
