Cultural recommendation for the weekend

Lewis Hine Photography Exhibition


“I wanted to do two things (said Lewis Hine summarizing his dedication to photography): I wanted to show what had to be corrected; I wanted to show what there was to appreciate. In accordance with this statement, it could, in fact, be affirmed that the work of the American Lewis Hine (1874-1940), with his images of urban work, child labor exploitation and, in general, the vital scenarios of the working classes, founded the contemporary visual memory of the painful conditions of the workers in the first third of the XNUMXth century.”
