Thank you for the reco. Sometimes I get so busy with my own work and photography I forget how important it is to learn from what’s been done. DEFINITELY going to check this out.

I feel in love with Lewis Hine’s photos as a teenager. They tell such a story of struggle…perhaps one notable difference between your work! :)

Wow, amazing expression and those eyes! Just the way they seem to be looking at you is incredible.

So…as a grad student studying to be photography historian, I adore photo books, I definitely have to check this one out!
Also, I have to recommend the Andre Kertesz catalog from the show at the Jeu de Paume last year, the show was absolutely gorgeous and I think that the book really holds up to such an emotional exhibition.
The other book that’s been on my mind is Terry Bennett’s Photography In Japan, he’s a collector whose especially interested in 19th century work and the photographs are breathtakingly beautiful. No one could do painted Albumen prints quite like the Japanese…

Lewis Hine is incredible. I studied him in depth in college-what he did for child labor laws with his camera and his eye is beyond inspiring. Thanks for posting this–haunting.

There’s such pain in the first photo, his eyes, etched on his face.
February 1, 2012 at 2:51 pm
I never get tired of looking at people’s faces. There is always something to find there.

You’re absolutely right. That top photo is so alluring, it just draws you in.
