We open the show with Lewis Hine (1874-1940), an American photographer and sociologist. In his youth, Hine experienced first hand the exploitation that countless children of the era were subjected to. This type of laborious, dangerous work that would regularly consist of long shifts, very little pay and would often lead to injuries, amputations and death. As Hine got older, he gained an appreciation for photography, and did his best to document the immoral working conditions that many children were forced into.
