Beautiful portrait of a wonderful man
23 February 2002 | by (Varde, Denmark) – See all my reviews

Jacob A. Riis left Denmark around the turn of the century for the promised land only to find poverty. Via a chain of chance opportunities Riis ended a groundbreaking, socially aware photographer who changed a lot for the poor of America. A beautiful drama-documentary.
