Artist: Lewis W. Hine (1874-1940)
Title: Powerhouse mechanic (1921)
Print: Vintage Gelatin silver print on premium quality paper in very good condition
Description: Hine’s iconic photograph of a mechanic in a Pennsylvania power plant celebrates the worker as a noble contributor to industry. The picture’s perfect union of mechanic and machine equates human muscle with industrial strength. Hine carefully positioned the man within the curves of the steam line and cylinder head. Striking a coiled pose for the camera, the worker grips his wrench, but close inspection reveals that it does not connect fully to the nut.
