This book is one of the most amazing I have ever seen. It contains just photographs with captions, it takes your breath away the photographs of the men building the Empire State Building - they were just wearing harnesses that's all! The fact as well that Lewis Hine had to be up there with them was amazing! One picture in particular of a child that is so haunting, on page 113 it breaks your heart - the poverty the families were living in was unbelievable, Lewis Hine captured it so accurately. Well worth the money.

Honest art, amazing book. 25 Jun 2012
By Sarah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Wow! This is a great book that belongs on the shelves of every modern American. It really puts our world in perspective. Hine's photography included in this book provides an eye-opening, yet beautiful and personal glimpse into the lives of the industrial working-class from the early 1900s. This book is emotionally gripping - child labor, tenement living, factory and farm work. Hine's eye was unflinching as he used his camera to document his subjects with a searing honesty and pure realism; I've never seen anything quite like it. While the first 35 pages or so are devoted to an informative text, detailing Hine's goals and experiences at work, the majority of the book is thematically arranged images. All photographs are black and white, and each page is devoted to one photo at a time, so you really have a chance to focus on each specific scene. The images from the construction of the Empire State Building are just fantastic - you have to see them to believe them! It's a lesson in art and social history all in one. This is a gorgeously printed book and a great buy!

Excellent book on a major photographer 12 May 2013
By Peter Wright - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I find the work of Lewis Hine to be fascinating. He showed the world around him as he found it and shows us the extraordinary lives being lived by very ordinary (in their own and others eyes) people. I look at the somewhat bemused expression on the face of the 12 year old factory girl taking a moment to pose for this strange man with his hugh camera, and wonder what her life was really like. The photographs are not difficult to interpret or understand in the way that many (more famous) photographers work can be. The layout and quality of the book is excellent, as are the reproductions and the text. If you have any serious interest in photography and it's past, this is a must have.

Even better than expected 4 Nov 2012
By rik - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Excellent book that gives a very good picture of New York under construction in the 20-ties and 30-ties of the last century. The photo portraits tell also about the soals of children, workers, and other persons from that era. The book itself is beautifully finished.

This book contains many great b/w photos of the best photographers of his time. It is a shame that very few people are taking photos that compare wiith his today!
