Jacob Riis (1849-1914) spent his first years in the United States as an immigrant and itinerant laborer, barely surviving on his carpentry skills until he landed a job as a muckraking reporter. These early experiences left Riis with an empathy for the lives of immigrants that would shine through in his iconic photos.

Here, the authors place Riis's images and book in a historical context, exposing Riis as both the photographer and social reformer—a writer and lecturer who harnessed the power of photography to affect social change and, in so doing, still inspires urban reformers today.
