  1. I think this photograph is one of the most important in photojournalism. Hine showed that he could create social change through photography. The direct stare of his subject is haunting and her eyes speak volumes about her job as a spinner. She looks innocent, yet aged.

  2. I think this work was a very in your face and striking example of the thought process of the time. It is always amazing to me how one photography can start major change and that is what is image did. It paved the way for the child labor laws we know of today.
