From June 8 to August 25, the Winterthur Photo Museum in Switzerland is exhibiting a collection of pictures by Lewis Hine, titled "Fotografieren, um zu verändern" (Photographing to bring about change).
The Winterthur Photo Museum is presenting a retrospective that includes 170 pieces of Hine's work and many of his work documents. They all proceed from the George Eastman House, International Museum of Photography and Film in Rochester, USA.
The American photographer and sociologist, Lewis Hine (1874–1940), became known for his pictures of child labour in America in the Thirties. His images were not only partly responsible for a change of awareness and for the first child labour reforms, but were also among the earliest and most important contributions to social documentary photography.
