Jacob A. Riis: Photographer & Citizen
by Jacob A. Riis
Publisher's Description
"The remarkable journalist and reformer Jacob A. Riis was a pioneer of America's great tradition of documentary photography. His images of the slums of New York have influenced every subsequent generation of photographers, while his insightful exploration of the problems of urban life continues to be educational for societies around the world."--the publisher. Riis, a self-taught photojournalist, did not consider himself a photographer but saw the camera as an instrument to aid in his fight for social justice. This comprehensive monograph combines numerous duotone reproductions of the artist's photographs with an in-depth account of his "extraordinary years with a camera."--the publisher.
