Artists in the Spotlight: Lewis Wickes Hine
Portrait von Lewis Wickes Hine Lewis Hine was an American photographer, best known for his portraits of simple workers and emigrants. As a social documentarist, he wanted to show social ills in the United States, which was shaken by years of depression and fierce labor disputes. As a trained sociologist, he had a heartfelt concern to achieve changes with his relentless photographs of child labor. "A good photo is not just the reproduction of an object or group of objects - it's an interpretation of nature, a reflection of the impressions that the photographer receives and wants to convey to others." With this motto in mind, he talked about construction of the Empire State Building, of child labor and the poor emigrants from Europe who arrived by the thousands on Ellis Island. Particularly impressive is his portrait of a mourning migrant worker with her children. The desperation and exhaustion in the face of the young woman is almost palpable. He himself came from relatively simple circumstances. After the early death of his father, he worked his way through occasional work until he managed to study pedagogy and sociology. At the same time, he taught at the Ethical Culture School in New York. Under the influence of his colleagues, he began to learn the basics of photography autodidactically. A few years later, he worked as a full-time photographer in Europe and the USA.
