One hundred years ago, the photographer Lewis Hine travelled to mills and factories in New England and the South, photographing child labourers. His photographs are among the most haunting images of children ever made. In this exhibition, a beautiful selection of Hine’s child-labour 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.
