Immigrants at ellis island 1905




 Lewis Wickes Hine

Wisconsin, 1874 - Nueva York, 1940

 Con la carrera de sociologia, su fotografia es una forma de investigacion elevada al arte fotografico mostrando la dura vida de la inmigracion de la norteamerica de primeros de siglo XX.
A la hora de realizar fotografías (él las realizaba con fines sociológicos) se veía antes como figura artística que como científico. Muy preocupado por el bienestar de los menos favorecidos, registró la llegada de los inmigrantes a Ellis Island, sus asentamientos en insalubres viviendas, sus trabajos en fábricas y tiendas y a sus hijos jugando en los cubos de basura. Hine comprendía la subjetividad de sus fotografías pero también creía que tenían un enorme poder de crítica, llegando a describir sus fotografías como "fotointerpretaciones".

  With a degree in Sociology, his photography is a form of high art photographic investigation showing the hardships of immigration in North America in early twentieth century.
When you take pictures (he performed with the sociological purposes) looked before and artistic and scientific figure.
Very concerned for the welfare of the disadvantaged, recorded the arrival of immigrants to Ellis Island, its settlements in unhealthy homes, their jobs in factories and shops and children playing in garbage cans. Hine understand the subjectivity of their pictures but also believed they had enormous power of criticism, to describe their photographs as "photointerpreters."
