Lewis Hines

Quite an interesting line of work by quite an interesting man, Lewis Hines (Rest In Peace 1874-1940). Wikipedia informs me that he was an American sociologist and photographer who used his camera as the tool to reform society and bring a change to child labor laws in the good ol U S of A.

Here are some pictures from this Great Person in History who captured people who now live on forever.  Sad, delicate, and soulful.  A picture truly is worth a thousand words.

  1. Lewis Hines is my personal hero. I studied photojournalism and sociology in college (1993-96). Lewis Hines has been with me ever since. He is why I have dedicated my life to civil service.
