Child labor photographer Lewis Wickes Hine made this composite photo from children working in a cotton mill. This kind of double exposure was popular in early photography. Strangely, it almost looks like one child? I think it's rather frightening myself. Lewis Wickes Hine (September 26, 1874 – November 3, 1940) was an American sociologist and photographer who used his camera as a tool for social reform. His photographs were instrumental in changing child labor laws in the United States.
