Social documentary photographer Milton Rogovin has been likened to the great social documentary photographers of the 19th and 20th Centuries, Lewis Hine and Jacob Riis. Milton, who lived to be 101 years old, dedicated his lifetime to creating photographs that speak of the humanity of working people, the poor and the forgotten ones. Milton’s photographs are a part of the documentary photography collections of the Library of Congress, the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Center for Creative Photography and other distinguished institutions around the world.
What I enjoy about Milton Rogvin’s photography is the simplicity of his work. That every day to day life of people. He definitely is a inspiration to me. Some of his images remind me of growing up as a kid in New York from the 60’s and 70’s.
