A self-proclaimed "social photographer", Lewis W. Hine created images that documented children at work throughout New England, exposing their exploitation as laborers. Macieski offers a detailed analysis of many of the images, unearthing the stories behind the creation of these photographs and the lives of their subjects. Macieski demonstrates how Hine worked to advance an unvarnished picture of a rapidly changing region and the young workers at the center of this important shift. Black & white photography throughout.
