Little Spinner Girl


Little Spinner Girl is a detail froma cartoon I designed for a commission. It comes from a photograph by Lewis Hine (1874-1940) an American sociologist and photographer. Hine used his camera as a tool for social reform. This photo, circa 1915, is of a young girl working in a spinning mill. Little Spinner Girl portrays child labor 100 years ago. We buy items today that were made utilizing child and other exploited laborers without a thought of where they came from.
