Edward R. Dickson

American, (1879–1956)
Edward Dickson was closely associated with Clarence H. White and the Pictorial Photographers of America in the 1910s and early 1920s. Deeply devoted to pictorialism, he edited a small magazine on the subject and published a book of his own ethereal images, illustrating poems by others. Dickson was born in Quito, Ecuador, and educated in London. In 1903, he came to the United States. Dickson was photographing by the early 1910s, when his work was included in group exhibitions organized by Clarence H. White that helped identify a new generation of pictorialists. He studied with White early on and was honored with a one-person exhibition at the Boston Camera Club in 1920. He consistently made pictures that were carefully patterned and low in contrast, revealing the influence of White and Japonisme. With an eye sensitive to monochrome design, he usually photographed shadows, trees, and water.
