Urban Wealth Gap
This post will firstly introduce a photographer, then come back to the topic.
As Peter mentioned Lewis Hine, do some research after class.
——- Lewis Hine ——-
Leo aged 8 working in a textile factory in Tennessee in 1910
Hine who was documentary photography, used his camera to capture the poverty he witness in New York. . In 1908 Hine published Charities and the Commons, a collection of photographs of tenements and sweatshops. Hine hoped he could use these photographs to help bring about social reform. He told one meeting that he believed his photographs would encourage people to “exert the force to right wrongs”.
As a school teacher, Hine was especially critical of the country’s child labour laws. he travlled around the world, taking picture of children working in factory, try his best to draw people’s attention, as the result of, restrictions were placed on the employment of children aged under 14 in factories and shops, achieve big success.
Hine, a photography , using his camera to courage people to care about the child, concentrated on the poverty. why not fashion designers can’t?
Fashion designers can also use his/her design to send some message, encourage people concerntrate on sth.
maybe they can design the cloth everyone can afford it, not just luxury things.
