The Complete Photographic Work of Jacob A. Riis (International Archives of Photography).

The Complete Photographic Work of Jacob A. Doherty (1924 – January 6, 2019) was an American photographer, scholar, and museum professional. His photographic work was first shown at Watertown, Connecticut, then at The Arts Club of Louisville, Louisville Art Center Association School, and at the Allen R. Hite Art Institute, University of Louisville. He became curator of the photography collection of the Hite Art Institute in 1962 and acting director of the institute two years later, and served as director from 1967 to 1972.

Portrait of Jacob A. Riis. Photographer Jacob Riis pioneered social reform through his photographs of everyday life in New York City’s slums. Riis soon began to photograph the slums, saloons, tenements, and streets that New York City’s poor reluctantly called home. In 1890, Riis compiled his photographs into a book, How the Other Half Lives: Studies Among the Tenements of New York.

Jacob Riis changed all that. Working as a police reporter for the New-York Tribune and unsatisfied with the extent to which he could capture the city's slums with words, Riis eventually found that photography was the tool he needed. With this new government department in place as well as Jacob Riis and his band of citizen reformers pitching in, new construction went up, streets were cleaned, windows were carved into existing buildings, parks and playgrounds were created, substandard homeless shelters were shuttered, and on and on and on.
