Lewis Hine: Photographs of Child Labor in the New South
by John R. Kemp
Publisher's Description
A selection chosen from the hundreds of photographs Hine took between 1908 and 1916 to document the astonishing conditions under which child laborers worked in the New South. Though the use of child labor was considered a necessity for economic recovery after the Civil War and a "character builder" for children, these pictures of degradation, monotony, and brutality were a powerful statement in the argument for reform during the progressive era.
