For the first time in Spain, FUNDACIÓN MAPFRE in collaboration with the George Eastman House (Rochester, USA), home of the archive of that name, is presenting a retrospective of the work of the American photographer Lewis Hine (Wisconsin, 1874–New York, 1940), one of the key figures for the aesthetic of social documentary photography. The exhibition will take place at FUNDACIÓN MAPFRE’s Recoletos site in central Madrid from 11 February–29 April.
Comprising a selection of 170 images, most of them vintage prints, the exhibition offers a complete overview of Hine’s career as a photographer while also locating him in the artistic, political and cultural context of his time.
