Preparing biographies

Approved biography for Edna Seaton
(Courtesy of Christian Peterson)

 
  
Edna Seaton demonstrated a spurt of photographic activity around 1930. A resident of Brooklyn, she most consistently showed in the annual exhibitions of the department of photography of the Brooklyn Institute of Arts and Sciences, from 1927 to 1930.
 
In 1929, her pictures were also seen at the Pacific International Salon of Photographic Art, sponsored by the Oregon Camera Club and hung at the Portland Art Museum. The same year, oversees juries accepted her work for the Internationella Fotografi Utstallningen in Goteborg, Sweden, and the photography salon presented as part of Barcelonaís Artes Decorativas de la Exposicion Internacio. In 1930, her venues included the photographic salon sponsored by the Camera Pictorialists of Los Angeles and the Terzo Salon Italiano díArte Fotografica Internazionale in Turin, Italy.
 
A print of Seatonís photograph Snow Shovellers is part of the museumís permanent collection. It is an elevated view of men working on a wide sidewalk, probably made in Brooklyn.
