A Visual Legacy : Selected Books and Photographs from the Donald Dickinson Gift

This student-curated exhibition celebrates Professor Donald Dickinson’s generous donations to Ryerson University’s Mira Godard Study Centre. These comprise rare and first-edition publications and photographs from the late 1950s through the 1970s. Books by Walker Evans, Robert Frank, and Eikoh Hosoe, among others, are presented alongside original prints by Thomas Barrow, Roger Mertin, and Minor White. The exhibition explores Dickinson’s response to the varied photographic practices and publishing of this significant period.
