Soulmaker: The Times of Lewis Hine
Through October 24
One hundred years ago the photographer Lewis Hine travelled to mills and factories in New England and the South, photographing child laborers. His photographs are among the most haunting images of children ever made. In this exhibition, a beautiful selection of Hine's child-labor photographs is juxtaposed with stunning contemporary photographs taken by photographer Jason Francisco (Stanford M.F.A., '89) of those same mill and factory sites as they look now.
