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. His most recent article is titled "'The Negro As He Really Is': W.E.B. Du Bois and Arthur Radclyffe Dugmore" (Exposure, Spring 2013).
Earlier work focused on photographic representations 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). Dimock holds a BA in English from Harvard University, an MFA in Photography from the Rochester Institute of Technology, and a PhD in Art History from the University of Rochester.
