An interesting selection of Hine's early published documentary work in its original context.
"Declaring that he "wanted to show things that had to be corrected," [Hine] was one the earliest photographers to use the photograph as a documentary tool. Around 1920, however, Hine changed his studio publicity from "Social Photography by Lewis W. Hine" to "Lewis Wickes Hine, Interpretive Photography," to emphasize a more artistic approach to his image making. Having joined the American Red Cross briefly in 1918, he continued to freelance for them through the 1930s. --the Getty Museum
