Milton Rogovin

The photographer Milton Rogovin has been likened to the great social documentary photographers of the 19th and 20th centuries, Lewis Hine and Jacob Riis. An exhibition of the 96-year-old photographer’s works will be on view at the Center for Creative Photography. Rogovin’s work speaks of the humanity of working people, the poor, and society’s “forgotten ones.” In the last year, the Center received approximately 340 Rogovin prints; these include gifts and promised gifts of 11 donors and the Rogovin family. These works will form the beginning of the Rogovin Collection at the Center, which will house more holdings of works and archival documents by the photographer than any other institution.
