Jacob Riis (1849-1914) was the author of How the Other Half Lives (1890). This study of his life and work includes excerpts from Riis s diary, chronicling romance, poverty, temptation, and, after many false starts, employment as a writer and reformer. In the second half, Yochelson describes how Riis used photography to shock and influence his readers. The authors describe Riis s intellectual education and discuss the influence of How the Other Half Lives on urban history. It shows that Riis argued for charity rather than social justice; but the fact that he understood what it was to be homeless did humanize Riis s work, and that work has continued to inspire reformers. Yochelson focuses on how Riis came to obtain his now famous images, how they were manipulated for publication, and their influence on the young field of photography."

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1, Martin Luther University (Anglistik/Amerikanistik), course: American Photography, language: English, abstract: This paper is concentrated on the work of Jacob Riis. He was one famous police reporter at the end of the 19th century. He dedicated his work to the immigrants of New York. At this time the city was overcrowded by people from all over the world and it was the city's problem to care for them in a proper way. Riis noticed this abuse and wanted to fight against it. Therefore he took pictures of the immigrants living in bad surroundings to convince people of the middle class that something needs to be changed. This paper is going to analyze three of his pictures with special attention to Marita Sturken and Lisa Cartwright's book An Introduction to Visual Culture: Practices of Looking. This book deals with visual culture and explains how people use and understand pictures. It refers to all kind of media such as photography, painting, film and television. Images are analysed under certain aspects. The book raises the question of how meaning originates or how the viewer constructs meaning. It refers to the principle of the gaze or spectatorship. It looks behind the structures of representation and the subject, and it refers to the Other as well as to voyeurism. This paper will look exactly at these four aspects, explains them and tries then to connect them with Riis' photographs. But before one can take a look at Riis' images and their analysis, this paper is going to give an insight into Riis' life in order to understand why the immigrant's life seemed to be as such important to him.

In 1996 Danish cycling legend Bjarne Riis won the Tour de France. 11 years later he called a press conference and confessed to taking performance-enhancing drugs in order to achieve the ultimate cycling triumph. In Riis, his sensational autobiography, the notoriously private Dane bears his soul. From the shy young daydreamer who discovered cycling as an eight year old, to the hardened, regular user of banned blood booster EPO. Brutally honest and as fast paced as one of his breakaways from the peloton, Riis is a powerful insight into a key figure in cycling.
