Art - Art History
Dr. George Dimock's current research centers on photography in the U.S. at the turn of the twentieth century. His approach is informed by semiotics and cultural studies. Earlier work focused on photographs of children and childhood with a particular emphasis on the child-labor photographs of Lewis Hine. In the fall of 2001, he curated an exhibition for the Weatherspoon Art Museum: Childhood Deployed: Pictorialism and Social Documentary in the U.S. (1890-1925). His most recent project seeks to recover a radical politics for American pictorialist photography.
