Mother Jones: The Photos That Helped End Child Labor in the United States

From Mother Jones:

by Mark Murrmann

In the early 1900s, Lewis Hine left his job as a schoolteacher to work as a photographer for the National Child Labor Committee, investigating and documenting child labor in the United States. As a sociologist, Hine was an early believer in the power of photography to document work conditions and help bring about change. He traveled the country, going to fields, factories, and mines—sometimes working undercover—to take pictures of kids as young as four years old being put to work.

    Superb blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?

    I'm planning to get started on my own, personal site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
    Do you recommend starting with a no cost platform like Wordpress or take
    a paid option? There are numerous choices available that I'm completely overwhelmed
    .. Any ideas? Cheers!
