      I didn’t know the story of the photographer until I found the image. “Lewis Wickes Hine was an American sociologist and photographer. Hine used his camera as a tool for social reform. His photographs were instrumental in changing child labor laws in the United States.” Wikipedia I want to read more about him. Thank you, Dan.
