Lewis Hine

Lewis Hine was born on September 26, 1874 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.He died on November 3, 1940 in Dobbs Ferry, New York.

Lewis Hine wanted to open people's eyes about the issue of child labor, and show people the horrible conditions children were put through while working in sweatshops and factories.

Hine went into the places children worked and photographed them working and, if he could not get in, leaving the building. He also conversed with the children, asking them about their name, age, living conditions, and working conditions.

Hine's father died from an accident when he was very young, and Hine was on his own when it came to education. Still, he started working and managed to get himself through college with a degree in sociology.

Hine taught at the Ethical Culture School in New York City, and he would take his students to Ellis Island to take photographs of the immigrants arriving.
