Seafood Museum reception to showcase images of Lewis Hine

Maritime & Seafood Industry Museum will host a public reception tonight from 5 to 7 to showcase more than two dozen restored images of world renowned photographer Lewis Hine.

Lewis Hine, one of the most prolific photographers of the early 1900s, traveled the country for decades documenting child labor in factories, mills, mines, and processing plants.

Bay St. Louis resident and retired photography teacher, Joe Tomasovsky recently discovered that Hine had taken pictures on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and spent hours meticulously restoring each one of the digital files that are on display.

The exhibit, which opened in May, will run through July 7.

For more information about the Lewis Hine exhibit or other happenings at the Maritime & Seafood Industry Museum, call 228-435-6320.
