This is a photo of a young boy who is in a factory. The image looks very old, from maybe from the 1860s. The lighting in this photo is very dark and an old worn feeling when you look at this photo. The objects in the image is the boy and a factory. He is posing in this image to let the author get a good shot.
The image is not underexposed. The image is focused on the boy standing next to the shelf? The color correlation is off, mainly because when this photo was taken, they didn't have color cameras. There is no pixelation but there is a small rip or tear in the top right corner. This photo is very pleasing to look at.
The rule of thirds affect is not in this photo as he is in the middle. The author took this from a bird's eye view. This photo does not really look framed as there is no outline. The image is not balanced because there is nothing on the boy's left. There is some extra space in the photo.
The theme of this image is maybe to work hard? The story might be to stop child labor. This image for some reason reminds me of people working in a factory. It brings questions to my mind such as, Does the boy want to be here? I do like this photo a lot and recommend it to anyone who likes old photos.
This image is of a young boy posing for a photographer. He seems to be working in a factory. This image is a very old image, probably taken in the 50's. The colors being used is white, black, and brown. The lighting being used is of natural lighting. In the image there the image is inside .
This image is a little under exposed. The image is being focused on the boy and on the machine he is working on. The color white is more of an off white. This image is not pleasing to look at. The image is not good quality and has nothing interesting to look at. The story seems to be that at a time little children such as young boys had to work hard as well as their parents, instead of watching TV. The point of view is a direct view from a person standing.
For some reason this image reminds me of my father. My dad was born in 1961, and he had to work hard when he was a little kid. He never lacked at anything. HE worked with his dad when he was a young boy. He helped out my dads parents with money. This image makes me feel how in the old days how children had to work hard just like their parents. Now kids just depend on their parents, Kid now just lack on everything and expect everything to be just handed down to them.
This image itself is not beautiful but it does have a good story behind it. Although i don't like the quality and would never buy this image, i do like it. I like the image because i like the story behind it. in the end this image is successful.
This image by photographer Lewis Hine shows a young boy standing beside spools of materials in what seems to be a textile factory. This image is in black and white, and the lighting is moderately dark. Although the boy and the spools of materials are well-lit, the surrounding area appears dark with small patches of light seeping in from the windows. This photo looks like it could have been taken around the early 1900's when child labor was very common. The look on the boy's face is pretty emotionless and tired. It gives off the vibe that he has been doing his work for a long time, and he appears to be the only one working in that section of the mill.
This image is slightly underexposed because of the amount of shadows surrounding the subject of the photo. The image is in focus, but because of the oldness, there are many fuzzy spots and scratches visible. The image is color correct, the whites appearing white and the blacks appearing as black or dark gray. The resolution is pretty adequate for the time period this photo was most likely shot in. Ignoring the few blurry spots, the image is mostly in focus. This photo is pleasing to look at because it is very basic and simple and conveys its message well. The lines of the machine in front of the boy help guide the eye to his body. This image is asymmetrical; no side of it is exactly the same. Despite not being symmetrical, the image does appear to be balanced.
This image was most likely taken from right beside/in front of the boy. The young boy is the focal point of the image, and he is framed by the surrounding lines and shadows. The frame of the photo crops off the rest of the machine, the rest of the room he is in, and below the boy's knees. The subject does not fill the frame, and the empty space is the blacks provided by the shadows in the background. The positive space is the subject and the machine next to him, and the negative space is the shadows cast by the windows in the room.
I believe this image was used to raise awareness about child labor when it was very prominent in the American work force. Because of the look on the young boy's face, it sparks some sympathy for the boy because it is easy to see how young and innocent he is. I believe Lewis Hine, the photographer, could have shared these photos with the rest of the country in order to have people rise up and stop child labor. I believe he was successful in this due to the emotions that this image would draw from the average person. It is easy to see that the boy looks unhappy and exhausted, feelings people usually don't associate with children. This image definitely could have challenged political beliefs during its time--as it called out the substandard conditions of the mills. I do like this picture because I believe that the purpose behind it is amiable and passionate. I also believe that this image is beautiful because of its simplicity and straight forward message.
This image shows a young child working in a factory. He is wearing overalls and looks very tired from his work. The image is in black and white, probably because of the time period the picture was taken, but it does contribute to the theme of the picture. The lighting is natural and comes from the window behind the back of the boy. The objects within the photo are mainly factory tools such as machinery and the bottles the boy is working on.
The image is perfectly exposed. The image has a shallow depth of field and the boy is in focus. The color is not very correct because the black are more brown and gray than fully black. There is no pixilation. The image has adequate resolution.
This image is pleasing to look at because of the color and angle the photo is taken in. The rule of thirds is not being used because the boy is in the center of the picture. The photo is taken from the side of the boy. The photo is not being framed. The image is asymmestrical because of the materials that are only to the right of the photo.
The theme shown in this photo is about child labor. It is showing the cruelty that child labor brings. We see the cruelty in this photo is shown through the boy's sad expression and stance. The image reminds me of all the old time movies where there are children working to help out the family. This questions my beliefs because children should not be working were they could get injured. Let the children be children!!!
The image is of a little boy in a factory. This image is in sepia because its an old photograph. The lighting is natural sunlight coming from the window. There are some bottles in the frame. There are also factory gears in the background. He's working in the image.
The image is a bit underexposed. The only part of the image that is in focus is the boy. The colors are not correct. There is no pixelation but it is grainy. The image has adequate resolution.
The photo is pleasing to look at. The rule of thirds is kind of being used. The depth of field is shallow. The focal point is the boy. The lines on the shelf direct your eyes to the boy. The subject does not fill up the frame.
The theme of this image is child labor. I think the story behind the photo is he's a child worker just trying to provide for his family. I think the image challenges our views on child labor. The image is quite noteworthy. It shows us the struggle that some children went through back in the day.
This image shows a young boy working in a factory of some sort. He looks very dirty and doesn't look happy at all. The photograph is black and white which highlights all the dirt in the factory. The only living thing in this image is the boy but he is accompanied by many machines in the factory. The lighting is very dark and dirty.
The image is perfectly exposed, however the image has a lot of shadows which makes it seem darker. The only thing in the image that is perfectly focused is the boy, all other things are slightly blurry. The color is correct all correct in the photograph. However, there isn't any pixelation in the image. There is also adequate resolution.
The image isn't necessarily pleasing to look at because of the darkness of it. The rule of thirds is being used because both the boy and the machine the boy is looking at are within the intersections. The photograph is taken from a side view to see the boys face and that he is working at the machine. The focal point of the image is obviously the boy because he is in focus and the only living thing. The boy doesn't take up the whole image but as i said he is accompanied by his machine.
I believe the message behind this image is child labor. Children aren't made to work and make money for the family. They need a chance to grow up and be childish before a heap of responsibility is thrown upon them. This image is definitely noteworthy because of the message it gives to adults. I do enjoy this image however is makes me uncomfortable to think bad on a time when children weren't allowed to be children. This photograph is probably successful because it teaches parents a lesson.
This photograph by Lewis Hine, taken in 1909, is of a distressed boy wearing a button down shirt, suspenders, and pants and is doing child labor. He is working at a factory at a very young age and the emotion on his face shows what he is feeling. He is standing sideways with his head turned at the camera. His left hand is placed on the machine with his other hand place on his leg.
This image was taken in the early 1900s, so the quality isn't great but the lighting is. The source of lighting is from a window behind him and the photograph is very grainy. The boy and the machine are the main focus of the photograph and the background is very plain and it brings the focus to the boy. The image is in an old photo-like black and white. Since it is in black and white, it brought out the features of the boys face and his clothes.
This photograph taken by Lewis Hine is pleasing to look at but it is also a very sad image because of the way this child had to live his childhood by doing child labor. Rules of Thirds is being used through capturing the eyes, nose, and mouth. The lines of the factory machine lead the eye to the boys face. Just like in our previous photograph, a person's emotion tells a lot about the person and what they are going through.
I believe that there is a very deep story behind this photograph. The boy's face shows that he is in pain and he is being forced to do something a normal child would never think of doing. People who felt with child labor growing up know that these memories stick with you forever. You can see through the boys eyes that he is going to remember this tough time of his life for the rest of his life.
This photo is of a boy in a factory. There appears to be some kind of string or cotton on spools. The photographers name is Lewis Hine. This photo is probably shot in the 20th century. The photograph itself looks old due to the wrinckles.
The boy is most likely a worker in the factory. This photo is shot with a shallow depth of field. The lines in the photo direct you in multiple directions. The factory is made of wood. There is negative space in the back of the photo.
I think the photo is very straight forward. There is not a whole lot of room for interpretation. The boy obviously does not live in the same time period as me. He is looking at something or somebody. His clothes are old fashion.
The photographer did a good job of showing us what his life is like from a different perspective. I do not find this photo appealing to look at because of the darkness. There are also smudges on the sides. I like the history behind this image though. The photographer is successful in making this photo because of the meaning behind it.
The image is of a boy standing next to a machine. The colors that are used in the image are black and white. There is natural sunlight flowing through some windows in the image. The objects included in the image are the boy, a machine, a some sort of bottle the machine is producing. In the image, the little boy look like he is running the machine.
The exposure in the image is perfect. The image is in focus. The color does not look correct because it is in the black and white. The subject doesn't fill the image because the machine can also be seen. The image is not pleasing to look at because the kid look like he is overworked.
The rule of thirds is not being used in the image. The photographer took the photo facing towards the boy. A shallow depth of field is being used. The focal point of the image is the boy. The image cuts off the rest of the machine.
The theme of the image is child labor. The artist made the image to expose the awful realization that kids had to work hard laborious jobs in order to help support their families. The image reminds me off an old movie because its black and white. The image is interesting because it can be interpreted in different ways. I don't like the image because it makes me sad for the kids that were forced to work hard jobs.
The picture shown above depicts a young boy in worn out working clothes and suspenders. He seems to be standing in some sort of textile factory, presumingly milk from all of the milk bottles stacked next to him. From the fashion of his clothes and the context of textile production, I can assume that the photograph is supposed to depict being in the early 1900s, or the in the Great Depression. The boy's body language shows us that his is tired. He is also dirty and covered in soot, probably after a full day of working.
The photo is taken with a shallow depth of field, with the boy and some of the the bottles near him. I can assume that this photo was taken with a film camera, with regard of the technology at the tim. Also I can see some spots in the photo that I conclude as the imperfections in the film. Also, the photo is in sepia which contributes to this vintage look.
I think that this photograph has an interesting story to tell. This young boy probably has to support his family by working long hours in this factory. This is especially vital during the recession that happened in the United States. This is shocking to us now since child labor is not condoned and that education is the path of children. However, this photograph depicts a unique perspective of a child in a different era of our country today.
The photographer's motives in capturing this subject is interesting to me.The picture is not of something glamorous or exciting, but quite the opposite of that spectrum. The sadness of a child working long hours, impairing his health is probably the truth that wasn't discussed. The photographer probably wanted to shed light on his concern of the situation and to make a statement. This was the harsh reality of the American working class in the early 1900s.
Personally, I like the picture very much, both for its composition and message. The photo is honest by showing the harsh realities of people at that time. Also, the way the light filtered to the window and onto the boy highlights all the details there is to depict his story. The light brightens up the dark and dusty factory almost as a sign of hope. I also think that the boy looking into the camera and his expression shows his true feelings. Overall, I enjoy the authenticity of the photo along with the element of light illuminating the picture.
The image shows a child working with (cotton?) at a factory (probably 1800s). There is a wall-array of cotton roll, and a child with old fashioned clothes. He has a very bored expression in his face, and seems like he will just go straight back to work as soon as the photographer goes away. The light is coming from the windows, which are directly behind the boy. There is no artificial light in the picture, just the natural light from the windows. The image is a old-looking type of black and whites, as you would expect from a picture from the 1800s. In the image, the boy seems to have temporarily stopped his long day of working in his position in the factory to take that picture.
The image is perfectly exposed, and is properly focused on the subject, even though there is some grain. The whites on this photo look gray-ish with a very small hint of brown. the sides of the image seem to have some grain and spots, also as a result of the old cameras. The resolution is ok.
The photo is asymmetrical, and has a shallow depth of field. The lines from the array of cotton rolls and ropes in the background create depth and direct your eye towards the subject. The subject fills a small portion of the image, and the background portrays machines in an industrial revolution-type factory.
The image shows a young boy, maybe 9 years old, working in a cotton factory in a time when child labor was legal.., Ill finish this in another comment
This is a photograph of a young boy looking sad while he is working. He is wearing overalls and looks dirty. The lighting is natural lighting because of the sun in the background. The boy is standing next to rolls of cotton. There's a wheel in the background as well as the cotton.
The lighting is a little underexposed. The focus of the image is the young boy. The coloring is correct because the whites look white. The rule of thirds is not being used because the boy is in the center and the cotton is to the far right. The photograph is framed by a black outlining.
The theme of this photograph is raising awareness for child labor. The boy is unhappy with his life, which is depicted in this image. This reminds me of a video that I watched in one of my classes that was about a boy struggling. The image is noteworthy because there is an immense feeling that the boy is trying to escape the factory that binds him. The cotton strands show this because as the cotton is bound to the textile mill, the boy is bound to the work.
I like this image because to me it symbolizes the struggle some people must go through to succeed. This image symbolizes the struggle that everyone goes through at one point in their life. The photograph is successful because the photographer got his point across that child labor hurts the children. The photographer shows that problems in society can hurt everyone, not just some people.
The image is of a boy, most likely 12 or 13. He is in a fabric/textile factory, most likely because he works there. The image is in black, whites, grays and creams though there are some brown undertones. The lighting is very poor and probably coming from a dirty window. The image is slightly underexposed and the subject is in focus, but the left side of the photograph is blurry.
The composition is pleasing to look at, I like the imperfections in the photograph though they are probably a result of photo development and not intentional. The rule of thirds is being used as the boy is in the center third. The point of view could be that of another factory worker and is at eye level with the subject. The focal point is the boy and the machine in front of him. The subject fills the frame and almost zero space is left empty.
The image tells the story of a child labor worker's day at work. The boy is covered in soot, dirt, or probably both. His clothes are dirty and his hair is matted. I think the artist made this image to show the harsh reality of child labor and bring awareness. the boy is being portrayed in a way that is very natural, nothing extreme or posed, he is simply doing his job, without questions, as always. His work and the things that come with it are things he has become accustomed to, even though to an outside it is quite evident that something is wrong.
I like this photograph, I love the feel it has to it. The quirks and imperfections from the development or damage to the film. I think the photograph is beautiful because it captured the reality of many Americans, and American immigrants. It provides great contradiction to the childhood of the 21st century. One where, you are handed an iPad or iPhone the second you make noise instead of being forced to work and live in inhumane conditions in order to survive
The colors of the image show a old fashioned theme to the photograph making it look like it was taken in the 1800's or the early 1900's. The photograph is a mix between dark shadows and bright sunlight. the dark shadow can be seen in the background and near the machine, and the bright sunlight can be seen on the side of the boys face.
I my opinion the image is underexposed because for most of the image the background and the boys body are to dark. The image is in focus because the boy is in he center of the image. The color is correct for the time period this photo was taken. The white seems to be white. The image has adequate resolution there seems to be no pixelation.
What I think that the image's theme is that a boy is working in a cotton gin in a southern state. I think that the artists intention was to take photos and see what children's jobs were like. The image makes me challenge my beliefs of working, because in the image we see a child working at such a young age and it makes me feel happy that I don't have to work like that.
I like the image overall it makes me feel happy and sad. It makes me feel happy because it makes me feel thankful for not having to work like the child in the image, and it makes me feel sad for all those children that had to work and skip the chance to have an education. In conclusion I think the image is successful, and it shares a piece of history.
In this photo there is a boy. The boy is wearing a button down shirt. He is also wearing overalls. The boy is standing in a factory. The boys face is dirty.
This photo in under exposed. This photo has a shallow depth of field. It is focused on the boys face. The photo is in black and white. This photo was edited.
The photo shows child labor. This photo is sad. The photo gives off a spooky theme. The boy looks sad.
I don't like this photo. Because it is dark. And the photo shows the truth of the world in some country's. this photo is from along time ago. The photo is depressing.
The photo above is of a young boy who seems to be working in a textile factory. The boy looks about ten to fourteen years old and he has a stern look on his face. The colors of the photo are black and white, but the black looks like it has a brown under town on the left side of photo. The artist choses black and white probably because that was the only option he had since this photo looks to be really old. The lighting is bright and natural, it seems to be coming from a window to the left side of the boy. In the photo, the boy is standing in front of a machine that seems to have spools of thread on it.
The image looks to be slightly under exposed and has lots of shadows in it. The object of focus, the boy, is in focus but the spools of thread on the right side of the photo are blurry. The color looks to be correct and the resolution is adequate. The photo has many imperfections because time has taken its toll on the photo. There are obvious imperfections, but that's what make the photo pleasing to look at.
The photo is pleasing to look at because there is a story being told about the boy. The boy's facial expression is telling the viewer a lot about how he feels. The tired and dirty look of the boy makes the viewer have a lot of questions about what's going on in the photo. Rule of thirds isn't being used because the subject of focus is in the center of the space being used. No frames are seen in the photo, but the shadows are directing the viewer to look at the boy. The subject/ frame is filled and no negative space is seen.
The theme of the image is probably to display how child labor during the industrial revolution could take a toll of a child. The story being told is simply to show the misery of the boy in this photo. The pure reason behind the photo was to capture the boy and his feelings. The photo at the time could've made people question the working industry and child labor laws at the time. Overall, the photo is striking and iconic because of the message it sent to people and the memory it displays in the 21st century today. I really like the image and think that the photograph is successful and powerful.
