"lewis hine" Discussed on Design Matters with Debbie Millman

"Three hundred images as well as essays written by the likes of the new yorkers hilton ounce. She joins me today to talk about the evolution of her extraordinary career. Catherine opie welcome to design matters. Thank you so much dovey and designed does matter. So i'm happy to be here. Thank you thank you catherine. I understand that you still have a garfield stuffed animal. And a third place bowling trophy from the nineteen seventies on display in your studio. I actually think it's eleventh place a more worse in my mind. Yeah okay why do you still have these objects and way on display. Well you can see me. I have a shelf behind me. If people were on zoom they would be able to see a shelf behind me that numerous books and little things and recently my mom was cleaning out her house and whereby ready to move her to another place. That is for Living at eighty five and a really beautiful way and she brought me this trunk of objects. And when i opened it it was just. I had the shelves. And i thought oh. Well i'll just have this weird garfield stuffed animal and one can't throw out the eleventh place. Plaque of bullying from sandusky ohio. No i agree. I have to confess. I have a little trophy from sixth grade coming in third place in the three legged race and that that is also important to be still a little bit better than me. Well yeah just. Just the only evidence of athletic prowess i will ever have in my life. So yeah gathering you. Were born in sandusky ohio. Your mother was a gym teacher until she had children. Your dad ran. His family's art supply. Company is true we also had one of the country's preeminent collections of republican political memorabilia both republican and democratic. Actually it was. It was a large overview of of political paraphernalia including all the lincoln ferro types so it was quite an extensive fairly important collection. Actually what has happened to the collection He sold it upon us leaving. Ohio and i think that that person and donated to the smithsonian in my father's obituary. It said that he donated it to the smithsonian but my father was a frugal businessman. And i think he sold it to somebody who then donated and i understand. He gave you an embroider. Commemorative ribbon made after the assassination. Of abraham lincoln. Is that true. Yes that is true. I have that upstairs here on the studio in this special little box. That is actually a family. Business box opie craft. And it's kind of his treasure chest that He's sent to me before he passed away. So that i would have these different little moments including he always carried in ohio buckeye in his pocket for lock. So it's just this little treasure chest of things that included the lincoln ribbon because lincoln happened to be assassinated. Unfortunately on what is my birthday april fourteenth. Oh wow now. Was your father. Republican by father was republican up until Obama ran and when obama ran my father's switched to being a democratic voter of for the reasons that the republican party was no longer the republican party that he believed in and he did not like the conservatives and he believed that women had a right to choose and he believed having lesbian daughter that i had rights and so forth and so the republican party that he grew up with was no longer an affiliation that he wanted to have he must have been extraordinarily proud to know that your work was hanging in the obama. White house yeah. No he was. I mean he was very proud of me. He you know one of my biggest nervous moments was both him and my stepmother. Coming to the nineteen ninety-five whitney biannual opening. Because it was the first time. I was ever in a major museum. Show and obviously my weirdness was very much on display there but he just rode along with it in a in a very good way you know surprisingly so i want to talk about the exhibit and a little bit but i want to start first with your first experiences with photography. I understand it eight years old while in the fourth grade. You wrote a book. Report on the photography of lewis. Hine why lewis hine. And how did you first find out about him. Well was actually not on lewis hine. It was on the photograph of the girl from the carolina mills. It was in my social studies book. And i was reading about child labor and i was supposed to be writing a report about child labor and the history of that in the us. And but i spoke about the photograph. And what the photograph told me and it made me realize that also probably growing up with all this political memorabilia around me that history is made within an image culture and so i had that awareness of apparently and asked for a camera on my ninth birthday. So i could be. You know a documentary photographer. So you always knew what you wanted to do and to be in a way. I guess i mean i guess so. It seems now that it's hard to believe that. That was really what i was going to decide to be. But at that moment it was important to me and the camera was bought for me for my birthday. And i used it throughout my life to document my life and that is including even when we moved to california. I used by babysitting money to build a dark room in in our house where i ruined. The family tiles of the bathroom with chemistry design does matter. Yeah your mother gets mad at you if you get fixture and developer oliver bathroom tiles but was a spare man. It was my bathroom attached room so it was perfect way to make a dark room. Yeah i spent a lot of hours in there. I understand that you went about making friends. When you move to san diego or outside of san diego by taking photos and i believe this is also when you had. Your first crush is that. I had my first crush on a very beautiful woman. Who was a profoundly. Amazing actor by the name of serene. Monet flack and she lives in england at this point but She was my first major crush where i was still trying to figure out certain things but just couldn't not be around three and would you know i grew roses and i would bring her rose every day and so it was pretty crush worthy actually. Although sri didn't realize that i had a crush on her. I met up with her later in england. And said you know. I was completely in love with you in high school and she was like you were. I thought you were just my best friend. I was like oh well you. You knew from a young age that you were gay but said that the lack of role models around you made coming out a difficult process. And you and i are the same exact age both born in nineteen sixty one and so i didn't come out until much much later in life and so i fully understand that sort of difficulty. What was the most difficult aspect for you. I think that until i moved to san francisco again. I didn't have it surrounding me. I was called names in high school. I was called a dyke. Was you know kind of harassed that way being homosexual scared me..

"lewis hine" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know

"So chuck It turns out that there were two the progressive era as one of my favorite airs. Or i should say the people from the progressive era or some of my favorite people francis pregnant although she was a second or third wave progressive reformer but using fire by some of these earlier ones who were working on things like Fair wages like minimum wage minimum or maximum work days or working hours And they also train their sights on things like ending child labour or at the very least really restricting. The of work kid could do especially In regards to them being in school to the idea was to put school first and then if the kid had the wherewithal or their parents really needed the money or something like that they could let them work in addition to school but the school needed to come first and this is really radical. I mean seems radical. We had kids rolling cigars in their one room apartment in new york their whole lives and now all of a sudden some people are coming up now could should be in school and then maybe working preferably not working. So how do we make that happen. Yeah it was a very big deal in. Most of these are a lot of them. Were women people like jane. Addams and julia. Lathrop and lillian ward Anti-poverty measures in. This is stuff that you know they would also go onto champion Women's rights and women's rights in the workforce and women's rights to vote so as the whole progressive moon was kinda tied up in all these radical ideas about you know being fair and good decent human being radical so Here's the problem is you've got these robber barons in these factory owners in these industrialists who were like. Wait a minute. We got a good deal going because we don't pay these kids much. They're probably not going to unionize. Like the newsies thing was definitely an anomaly. Yeah that didn't happen much. And he said they were like we got a. We got a good thing going and So we're going to lobby against this as hard as we can. But surely they were unsuccessful right now. They were successful. They did they blocked legislation early on For this kind of regulation Federally states Kind of depends on where it was but saints did establish child. Labor commissions in some states had some minimum ages minimum or maximum hours and minimum. wages it was They were sparce. Couldn't find what states passed but For the most were there was a there. Probably for the most part though there was a a lot of pushback in enough pushback among the states The residents of the states that that not a lot got passed so there was a progressive movement that started saying like the eighteen nineties and it had to basically like any progressive movement iran. Full steam ahead hit a huge wall of industry and then had to slowly. Just keep pushing and pushing and chugging and chugging and keeping at it for a few decades before it was successful One of the ways that it became successful or the way that he kept pushing at it after it hit. That wall of industry is A group called the national child. Labor committee formed And i think they formed in back in nineteen. Oh four and they were basically. They became a lobbying group to lobby against the lobbying against child labor laws that ended child labor. Yeah and they had a pretty smart way to get attention and That was in hiring a photographer. Name lewis hine yeah to go around and sneakily document what was going on with his camera. Yeah he was. He worked as a sociologist and a teacher and then later became a photographer was also a photographer and I think he himself was a a kid who was working twelve thirteen hour days. So let me start taking pictures of these kids. And maybe that because that's worth a thousand words they say at least and he's five thousand. Yes so that means that he took fifty thousand words. No five five thousand five hundred. I know undermine your your man. It was totally wrong. It was purposefully wrong though. Let me just do that. Real quick do carry the one. He took five million words. That's a lot of words and if you go back you probably seen a bunch of these pictures if he's seen pictures of very unhappy kids outside of the coal mine or standing on mountains of shucked oysters or standing around Factory machines like little miniature adults. They were probably lewis hines photos. Yeah i mean five thousand photos all archived in the library of congress from what i understand And he had like a really great i to begin with good of graphs themselves. But you know you don't have to sit there and like try to really contemplate it just hits you immediately. What you're looking at. And how sad what you're looking at is. And so he and the national child labor committee got these into newspapers And like you said He was very sneaky. He he poses different things One of them made sense to me the industrial machinery photographer. Okay yeah got fat. But wh- excuse a bible salesman have for taking photographs of the kids at the factory. I could not find that on my life. I mean the only thing. I would think that got him in the door and then maybe he was like and i just love kids and can i take some pictures. But i don't know this is the time before stranger danger. I guess so. They were like sure ryan their child. Labor is. I don't care about him yeah he also He wore a special jacket where he had the buttons on the jacket aligned in known measurements so if he went over instead like he would take your kid's picture and he would ask you know they're documented like their names and their ages and stuff As best he could but he would go stand next to them if he felt like. He couldn't outright ask what their age was to kind of tip off that maybe he was not a bible salesman right And you know if the kid went up to the second or third button he would know roughly how tall they were. All there were then roughly. How old they were right. The giants right right yeah. I'm sure you know he didn't get him all right but you know you can't win them all but the other thing that made That jackets special chuck was that the lining was made of a t shirt of a rip chest and abdomen. Make them feel really good about himself when he put the jacket on. That's good let's call When did things finally change though Well they started to kind of change like these. These pictures shocked the conscience of the nation when they when they saw them when they made them in the newspapers and they were accompanied by muckraking articles. About how bad these conditions were and you know. Shame on you. America for turning a blind eye to this kind of thing but it wasn't like an instantaneous switch thrown it still took decades. I think the first proposal for anti child labor Legislation came in one thousand nine hundred six. Senator albert beverage of indiana Was the first to propose it. Got taken up in nineteen sixteen by the keating act that was actually passed but the supreme court shut it down And then there was some more legislation that there was a constitutional amendment actually got passed but wasn't ratified by the states and then it wasn't until the great depression and the new deal that it finally got past and i think if they were just the new deal it wouldn't have gotten past but the great depression changed things socially enough that opened the door for an end child.

And i'm just got to go on this little rabbit trail smelter so she talked about how when two people come together and they talk about something and they.

Tell me if this is not a basic bitch move. Okay this guy's running theme. And i feel like i should get props for doing a ton of research on this guy's instagram outright. The big thing that he would do that he loved this brand of beef. Jerky called perky jerky have you heard of it. I have turkey right john. How definitely had heard of it right. And what he would do is anytime he was on hike. He would take a bag of perky jerky and hold it up and go. Oh my god my perky jerky here or he would like this word for word. One of his posts. He hid the bag of turkey jerky underneath the rocker to. And he said in this caption. I spy with my little eye a bag of all caps. Perky jerky exactly. This is the reason why. Although you may view this guy as a martyr he probably would not have been. I note upon out with growing minds. I'm sure 'cause he's using a bag of beef jerky as a personality. Here's the thing right. Yeah i'm sure that if martin luther had an instagram account probably wouldn't follow the hundred. I would not be interested in way to have some much trouble so much trouble it. Also this is the other thing. It does his hashtag. Ot otd would be so boring.

That's the sad part about martin luther. He just became all our grandparents should have been pulled away from the printing press. The printing press was his facebook account. Interest- interesting crazy shit. That came in. Just it would just be you know if there was snaps articles back then getting snail mail. Nope seeing this is false. Turns out the jews were not responsible for taking down the german empire. Sorry yeah. I think this is the other thing that the john chow story highlights for me. Jim elliott will forever in my mind.

Like as time went on. Or i like i can't imagine it seems like living that i it seems as though his life would be really really stressful. And yeah well. That's another topic for another day about in now. Well i know. But i just like to me sometimes. It seems like when you live in an all or nothing type of world plus you by the way. Excuse me felt really good. Then there's like this pressure on you.

Necker high neckermann to hired gun. This is they ride. This is a war hammer forty k. Game though yeah and shows completely lost on me.

And it's like there's some nacho die mass looking cathedral but you're underground it's just looks look super sharp the lightning the graphics are really good to having it run while seems to be a problem for people. That was definitely a problem with me. When i first started playing it i got about twenty minutes in. I take off my headphones for whatever reason and my view was screaming ever heard run this loud before i even after a reboot it was still trying to cool off afterwards but even in game. I'm getting mike or stutters Yeah as like panning around in and such like it'll it'll actually like it's in animations or some some shit i don't know what the hell it's trying to do but It's stuttering and that's a.

There's some movement options in this game. It's sad sufferer lewis hine of rat in that trailer then then and that definitely made me want to try it out. How does the just the kind of moment to moment like how does that stuff plays. Is it move well as it. is it like fun. I've seen mixed things about it. But i don't know if that's because of the performance stuff. I'm not deep enough into where the the warning everything is really. Come into. Play other than a couple Spots where it's just a reversal situation and not combat reversal. Or anything like that. But i don't know maybe danny's played more of it. I've been similar spot where most of it has been. There's been a couple of arenas where there there's been areas to use this bus Aside from that shooting one year wall running but also just generally shooting super punch out like it a lot of like loose. You know looking for head shots and the weapon wheel stuff works. Well even the deployment of med kits kind of on there.

"This structure is the highest thing in the world today that was ever created by the brain. Drawn Ingenuity. By the time the building opened on May 1st 1931 the workers labor and those photos had made the Empire State into a triumph of team spirit and hard work in hard times. It can still be transformative. Notes New York Times architecture critic Michael Kimmelman. It is a very cool thing on the skyline. Still, it's definitely a little hard to find. Sometimes, since the skyline has been redrawn by so many told buildings, which is a very interesting thing about told buildings the way they occupy what is fundamentally public space battles were our mental landscape. Of the city. With that kind of setback and antenna that creates this kind of ultimate symbol of height, that needle pointing at the sky For John Taryn in the building's biographer, its appeal is downright personal. It's almost I know this is a bizarre thing to say, but it's almost huggable. You know, there's a form to the building that is endearing. You don't find many buildings is that nature on part of it is because it's a very gentle building. There's nothing aggressive about it. Here's to the gentle huggable Empire State We love. You all who built it? And to Lewis Hine, whose pictures paid people love it even more. Just when they thought they'd lost everything. Its fiscal phones. I'm serious. Cisco I don't know.
