Whitney Standish was a Boston architect, active as a pictorialist, teacher, and salon judge, from the mid-1930s to early 1950s. His wife, Barbara Stuart Standish, also exhibited in photographic salons and wrote a few articles around 1940. Standish became interested in photography on his twelfth birthday, when he received a box camera and Kodak darkroom outfit.
During high school, he worked as a darkroom assistant at a photographic studio. In 1936, he started interacting with photographic organizations, and three years later he was the president of the Boston Camera Club. He spent much time with the New England Council of Camera Clubs and the Photographic Society of America. His pictures were seen in national salons and in the photographic press, most heavily during the 1940s. His most prolific exhibition season was 1945-46, when seventy-seven of his photographs were accepted by juries at twenty-one salons.Among them were Memphis, Minneapolis, Rochester, Wichita, and the Fifteenth International Salon of Photography, sponsored by the Pictorial Photographers of America and shown at the American Museum of Natural History in New York.
