Name Professor Course Date Essay on “How the other half lives” Question1. The meaning of “other half” and historical information Riis’ “how the other half lives” was written to express the different ways of life experienced in different parts of the American cities. He had traveled and lived in many parts of the world and felt the differences in the lifestyles in all the places he passed. According to Riis the world of the “other half” was being referred to the slums of the New York. These slums had lots of challenges including diseases abuse and immigrants (Lam 216). As a social reformer and a police Riis used this opportunity to familiarize himself with the perils of tenement living and saw the need to share his experience with the rest of the world about the horrendous conditions felt during this time. Riis used his camera to take images of extent he encourages people to step up their effort in finding other better job places. Just like Riis himself he faced and went through many difficulties and did many different jobs; he was initially laying bricks and later became a carpenter a police officer then a journalist at the initial days of his immigration.. As the nature of human being I feel the pathetic conditions of those affected and I can hold the stand of Riis to enlighten the public and help them in any possible way. Works cited Lam Jackie.
