Ag Magazine Chris DickieSunday started sadly today for the photographic community with the news that Chris Dickie has passed away.

An author, publisher, editor and enthusiast for all things photographic, Chris was probably best known as being the driving force behind Ag Magazine, The International Quarterly Journal of Photographic Art & Practice.

Ag Magazine is a superb publication, the only periodical to which I have subscribed in recent times.  It is self-billed as, “The Home of Photography”—a statement with which no reader could surely argue.

I didn’t know Chris very well at all; we met once and had a few chats over the phone.  Nevertheless, he has been in my thoughts an awful lot today.

A leading light has sadly been extinguished and I pass on my heart-felt wishes to his family.

  1. Well said Jack. He’ll be sorely missed.

  2. That’s sad to hear. I went to school with Chris, he was one of my best friends. He went by Kit back then. We used to go camping in the Lake District and Scotland in the 60’s. I was just going through old photos and found some from those camping trips, and googled some of the names. I moved to America and I haven’t been in touch with any of those guys for 40 years.

  3. Yes, it is very sad. If nothing else, I miss Ag Magazine and reading his words therein…he had an engaging and relaxed writing style. JL
