Ellis Island by Lewis W. Hine

Book Description

A celebration of photography as well as a document of the place, "Ellis Island" contains images by such well-known photographers as Jerry Uelsmann and Emmet Gowin. Filled with dozens of family portraits and both historic and contemporary documentary photos, the book resists the temptation for superficial flag-waving, instead providing a thoughtful and loving portrait of this sacred landmark in the American soul. -- "Los Angeles Times"Originally published to commemorate the reopening of Ellis Island to the public in 1990 after massive restoration, "Ellis Island" eloquently portrays the rich, multi-ethnic history of one of America's most significant immigration points.
