Milton Rogovin        USA        1909-2011

 

social documentary

photographer

who built a life's work

by looking through a lens

at people who were invisible

to others.

 

Rogovin's pictures

documented

the lives of the poor,

the dispossessed,

the working class

in particular those living

in a six-square-block

neighborhood

in Buffalo

near his optometry practice.

 

His first project

was a documentary series

on Buffalo's black churches.

 

Living on his wife's

schoolteacher salary,

he traveled to Appalachia,

Chile and Mexico

to take portraits

of working people

always using

an old Rolleiflex,

a bare bulb flash

and occasionally a tripod.
