Lewis Wickes Hine (September 26, 1874 – November 3, 1940) was an American sociologist and photographer. Hine used his camera as a tool for social reform. His photographs were instrumental in changing child labor laws in the United States. Hine was born in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, on September 26, 1874. After his father was killed in an accident, Hine began working and saved his money for a college education. He studied sociology at the University of Chicago, Columbia University and New York University

Born in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, Lewis W. Hine studied sociology before moving to New York in 1901 to work at the Ethical Culture School, where he took up photography to enhance his teaching practices. By 1904 he had begun a series of photographs documenting the arrival of immigrants at Ellis Island; this project, along with his pictures of harsh labor conditions published in the Pittsburgh Survey, brought his work to the attention of the National Child Labor Committee. Berenice Abbott and Elizabeth McCausland learned of his work through the New York City Photo League and mounted a traveling retrospective exhibition of his work to revive interest in it in 1939.

Lewis Hine is most famous for his photographs of the construction workers who helped build the Empire State Building in 1930. But in the years before he celebrated the heroic labour of these men working high above Manhattan, Hine used his photographs to campaign for social reform. In 1908 the then-sociology professor was hired by the National Child Labor Committee to document how children as young as seven were working in cotton mills and coal mines.

In 1905, a young sociologist named Lewis Hine Wickes decided to pursue photography as the medium with which to denounce injustice and poverty. Hine was one of the first photographers to document the wave of mass immigration from an impoverished Europe to an economically booming America, and his portraits of immigrants at Ellis Island offered a more positive image of this influx. Later, while working with the National Child Labor Committee, Hine compiled a vast corpus of images that showed how American industry was making use of child labor, helping to bring about changes in U.S. child labor law. But as he wearied of photographing poverty, Hine developed an idealized vision of the worker that emphasized the dignity of labor--a vision that culminated in his legendary Men at Work series, first published in 1932 and today a classic American photobook. "We call this the Machine Age," he wrote in its introduction, "But the more machines we use, the more do we need real men to make and direct them." This beautifully produced volume, which includes a complete facsimile of Men at Work, is compiled from the collection of the George Eastman House, to whom Hine's son bequeathed his archive after his death. It includes both well-known series and recently discovered early works, plus rare family photographs, ephemera and a detailed chronology. The works are arranged in thematic groupings: "Ellis Island," "Tenements," "Child Labor," "Chicago and New York," "Pittsburgh," "Europe," "Black America," "Empire State Building" and "New Deal." Lewis Hine (1874-1940) was born in Wisconsin and studied sociology at the University of Chicago. He served as official photographer for the WPA and for the construction of the Empire State Building. His later years were filled with professional struggles due to loss of patronage.

I find the work of Lewis Hine to be fascinating. He showed the world around him as he found it and shows us the extraordinary lives being lived by very ordinary (in their own and others eyes) people. I look at the somewhat bemused expression on the face of the 12 year old factory girl taking a moment to pose for this strange man with his hugh camera, and wonder what her life was really like. The photographs are not difficult to interpret or understand in the way that many (more famous) photographers work can be. The layout and quality of the book is excellent, as are the reproductions and the text. If you have any serious interest in photography and it's past, this is a must have.

This book contains many great b/w photos of the best photographers of his time. It is a shame that very few people are taking photos that compare wiith his today!

Excellent book that gives a very good picture of New York under construction in the 20-ties and 30-ties of the last century. The photo portraits tell also about the soals of children, workers, and other persons from that era. The book itself is beautifully finished.

Wow! This is a great book that belongs on the shelves of every modern American. It really puts our world in perspective. Hine's photography included in this book provides an eye-opening, yet beautiful and personal glimpse into the lives of the industrial working-class from the early 1900s. This book is emotionally gripping - child labor, tenement living, factory and farm work. Hine's eye was unflinching as he used his camera to document his subjects with a searing honesty and pure realism; I've never seen anything quite like it. While the first 35 pages or so are devoted to an informative text, detailing Hine's goals and experiences at work, the majority of the book is thematically arranged images. All photographs are black and white, and each page is devoted to one photo at a time, so you really have a chance to focus on each specific scene. The images from the construction of the Empire State Building are just fantastic - you have to see them to believe them! It's a lesson in art and social history all in one. This is a gorgeously printed book and a great buy!
