About the Exhibits

Several exhibits will be available to us, including Lewis Hine, a retrospective of the work of one of America’s most important early twentieth-century photographers. Hine (1874-1940) is regarded as both an early documentary photographer and a practitioner of Modernism. His depictions of immigrants, child laborers, and working men and women were informed by his training as a sociologist and educator and by Progressive Era concerns, while his photographs of the building of the Empire State Building have become icons of America’s rush toward modernity. Supporting the retrospective, a smaller exhibition, The Future of America: Lewis Hine’s New Deal Photographs, focuses on Hine’s work as chief photographer for the National Research Project (NRP), charged by President Roosevelt to assess industrial technologies and their effects on future employment. These works, made throughout the Northeast in 1936 and 1937, capture the look of labor and industry in transition, offering provocative parallels to today’s economic challenges.

Also on view will be JFK November 22, 1963: A Bystander's View of History and Zoe Strauss: 10 Years two exhibits that have had public significance and interpretation of life in America.
