The rise of a landmark

US PHOTOGRAPHER Lewis Hine (1874-1940) earned the title Father of Documentary Photography with his photos depicting child labour and European survivors of WWI. He also documented every foot of the construction of the monumental Empire State Building. The 22nd Month of Photography photo festival brings a selection of photos from this one-year long project. The exhibition, in the Pálffy Palace venue of the Bratislava City Gallery at Panská 19, will be open until December 12.
