Lewis Hine Documentary Photos
Lewis Hine was a social documentary photographer in the early part of the 20th century. He used documentary photography to expose areas of social injustice. His early topics included immigrants to Ellis Island, child labor across the US, and industrial work conditions in Pittsburgh. He later did a series of more positive work portraits. He was commissioned in 1930 to photograph the construction of the Empire State Building. His photographs are important to the fabric of American history. It’s good to see they are preserved and made accessible.
