‘There is work that profits children,

and there is work that brings profit only to employers.

The object of employing children is not to train them,

but to get high profits from their work,’ said Lewis Hine

Lewis Wickes Hine    1874-1940

 

Lewis Hine

was trained

to be an educator

in Chicago

and New York.

 

A project photographing

on Ellis Island with students

from the Ethical Culture School

in New York galvanized

his recognition of the value

of documentary photography

in education.

 

Soon after,

he became

a sociological

photographer,

establishing a studio

in upstate New York

in 1912.

 

For nearly ten years Hine

was the photographer

for the National Child Labor

Committee,

contributing to exhibitions

and the organization's

publication, The Survey.

 

Declaring that

he "wanted to show

things that had

to be corrected,"

he was one

of the earliest photographers

to use the photograph

as a documentary tool.

 

Around 1920,

however,

Hine changed

his studio publicity

from "Social Photography

by Lewis W. Hine"

to "Lewis Wickes Hine,

Interpretive Photography,"

to emphasize

a more artistic approach

to his imagemaking.
