Lewis Hine's Newspaper Work

I was showing someone Lewis Hine this morning and it prompted another dig. I tend to get lost in his work, especially reading the associated texts that he penned.

Here a small collection of just his 'Newspaper' work.

You can download large versions of over 5000 images and read their extended captions at the LOC. It's an ideal time to revisit some of this work given newspaper closures and growing social inequality. All are PD, available at print resolution and could be easily curated into a fantastic exhibition.
