This website is dedicated to my father, Loomis Dean, who was one of the renowned photographers whose work made LIFE magazine the leading photography showcase for more than four decades. His work has appeared in hundreds of galleries and museums worldwide, and he received numerous awards throughout his career.

More than anything else he loved to have his photographs published and seen by the public. No matter who or what he was photographing, he usually found a way to enjoy himself and others. And it shows in his work, some of which is represented here, and more on Life Magazine’s website.

Please contact me if you have any questions about his life and/or work.
