Our Strength Is Our People: The Humanist Photographs of Lewis Hine

Our Strength Is Our People: The Humanist Photographs of Lewis Hine
September 16–December 31, 2017

Lewis Wickes Hine (1874–1940) was considered the father of American documentary photography. This exhibition consists of rare vintage prints, and covers the three overarching themes of Hine’s three-decade career: the immigrant experience, child labor, and the American worker, culminating in his magnificent studies of the construction of the Empire State Building.
