Jacob August Riis (1849-1914) was a Danish-American social reformer, "muckraking" journalist and social documentary photographer. He is known for using his photographic and journalistic talents to help the impoverished in New York City. He attempted to alleviate the bad living conditions of poor people by exposing their living conditions to the middle and upper classes. As one of the most famous proponents of the newly practicable casual photography, he is considered one of the fathers of photography due to his very early adoption of flash in photography.
