1920 Photography
  • 17. Description <ul><li>A man in the center of the photograph tightening a bolt with a wrench on a steam engine. He has on a ripped, cut-off, shirt and some pants. The picture is in “sepia.” </li></ul>
  • 18. Analysis <ul><li>The lines of the steamer are bold and works with the circular form. </li></ul><ul><li>Its in the form of a machine so it is not exactly “straight”. </li></ul><ul><li>The texture seems like it would be rusty. </li></ul><ul><li>Color and value are used by Hine putting the light focus on the man, </li></ul><ul><li>and the photograph has a “sepia” tone to it. </li></ul><ul><li>There is pattern and rhythm with the bolts of the machine. With </li></ul><ul><li>proportion you can tell the steamer is much bigger. </li></ul><ul><li>There’s not much variety. </li></ul><ul><li>There is emphasis on the man. </li></ul><ul><li>The picture is balanced and looks good. </li></ul>
  • 19. Interpretation <ul><li>I believe the artist is trying to express the life of this worker and how much effort he is putting into his job because it is what keeps him alive. </li></ul>
  • 20. Judgment <ul><li>I think the work is strong because it shows how much he is working and the focus is right on the man. But the machine behind him makes it known there are much bigger things/responsibilities to worry about. </li></ul>

Connection to the Contemporary <ul><li>Scott Lapham could be connected to Lewis Hine as an author wrote a book connecting the two of them. </li></ul><ul><li>Lonsdale Cotton Mills is part of the show “Social Photography Across a Century: The Works of American Master Lewis Hine and Contemporary Artist Scott Lapham.” </li></ul>
