Newspaper Vendor, Lewis Wickes Hine, 1909

gelatin silver print, h 114mm × w 160mm. More details

Hine portrayed the European immigrants who came to America at the beginning of the 20th century. Life was hard in a big city where hundreds of thousands of people were looking for ways to make a living. Italian women were employed in ‘sweatshops’, sewing workshops, where they were grievously exploited. Even children, like this barefoot newspaper boy, were sent out to earn money.
