The Likeness of Labor
March 27 – May 26
In the early 20th century, American photographer Lewis Hine (1874–1940) embarked on a decades-long mission to document the abject working conditions of the nation’s child laborers with the hope of provoking change. The Likeness of Labor presents works by Hine and the generation of photographers that came after him such as Walker Evans, Arthur Rothstein and Dorothea Lange, who sought to portray the dichotomy of oppression and resilience of American laborers and migrants in the midst of the nation’s desperate economic conditions of the Great Depression.
