8.25" x 5.75". 443pp. Blue cloth with gilt lettering. Light wear to corners and spine tips, else near fine condition. With photo illustrations by the author. Riis was a Danish-American social reformer, "muckraking" journalist and social documentary photographer. He is known for using his photographic and journalistic talents to help the impoverished in New York City; those impoverished New Yorkers were the subject of most of his prolific writings and photography. Additionally, as one of the most famous proponents of the newly practicable casual photography, he is considered one of the fathers of photography due to his very early adoption of flash in photography. This classic work is an autobiography, following Riis s early life in Denmark and his struggles as an immigrant in the United States. Bookseller Inventory #
