Lewis Hine. Photography for a change

Photo museum Winterthur presents Lewis Hines comprehensive retrospective with 170 works and ample documentation. Hine wanted that Americans know about injustice in their nation’s legal system and he used photography to make injustice visible. Lewis Hine traveled 75 000 km through the United States taking photographs of children at work in agriculture, in mines, industrial factories, garment factories, and on the streets. Also in 1930, Hine documented people who worked in the ambitious construction of the Empire State Building in New York, where 14 builders died at work.
