Lewis Hine

Since it is Labor Day here in the US, the Washington Post has an article on Lewis HIne with a focus on some of his images of child labor in the early 1900s.  A lot more can be found at the Library of Congress website.

Thanks, Alan. There also have been several books published about Hine’s work. One excellent one is the 1977 Aperture Monograph that includes shots like “Breaker Boys,” which, more than anything else at that time, led public opinion against child labor.

His work has been counterfeited a lot... very expensive for several galleries. I think the photographer/collector Bokelberg was taken for several million bucks. (I trust it was Hine work that he bought in good faith - but memory etc.)

You can find out all about the scam on the web, if you care to look.
