Lost Children

I was thinking about the lost lives of children. Existences that went unnoticed by history, grieved over only by mothers and fathers.

These black and white faces were inspired by Lewis Hine – a social realist American photographer working in the early 1900s. One of the first photo-journalists, he is best known for the photographic documentation of the construction of the Empire State Building, New York. Throughout his life, he worked for child labour-law reform.
