Catalogue Note

FIRST EDITION OF HINE'S MASTERFUL DOCUMENTARY PHOTOBOOK. Published for an adolescent audience, this book famously depicts the construction of the Empire State Building, in addition to railroad men, coal miners, tire and airplane makers, and more. Executed in the photographer's characteristically modern style. "Hine's major and best-loved photobook is in the typical 'heroic worker' mode of the 1930s documentary photographer. It celebrates the dignity of labour and that most 'modern' industrial subject—the American skyscraper" (The Photobook).
