Watch: OneShot — Addie Card, The Face Of Child Labor

Watch: OneShot — Addie Card, The Face Of Child Labor

As a member of the National Child Labor Committee, starting in 1908, Lewis Hine photographed working children. His images helped expose their plight and end the practice. During World War I, he used his camera to document American Red Cross relief work in Europe. In the 1920s, Hine made a series of "work portraits' of children in dangerous factories. In 1938, the U.S. Congress passed the Fair Labor Standards Act, which prohibited anyone under the age of 16 from working during school hours. Hine's photographs were instrumental in bringing about that change.
