American photographer Lewis Hine (1874-1940) took world-famous photos of the construction of the Empire State Building and the immigrants on Ellis Island. Hine was a passionate photographer who wanted his photos to help improve people’s lives. His photos of immigrants on Ellis Island, child labour and workers carrying out their work on the Empire State Building, have become some of the key photographic icons of the 20th century.
