According to Social Photography by Lewis W. Hine, "To the range of advertising there is no limit, and where all are tooting the loud bazoo, the problem of any one making himself heard is no slight one. Advertising is art; it is literature; it is invention. Failure is its one cardinal sin".

My opinion about this quote is that advertising is an idea that never stops. This quote also states that advertising can be used for corruption. Advertising is a form that expresses itself. This quote means that advertising has everything to do with the image of a company. If a company doesn't have the right advertising for a product, then the product would fail in the competitive market. This quote means that advertising is a language that should be understood by people.

Is Hine concerned about the state of advertising? Or is he concerned about the effect of a medium that is devoted to selling rather than informing?
