Milton Rogovin's Son Mark Will Launch This Blog

Milton Rogovin has turned 100--and he is doing pretty well! The best way to meet up with him is to join him on Saturdays at an anti-war vigil in Buffalo.

The Rogovin website has a new webmaster and tons of new material. Most importantly we have expanded the Education section of the site with 14 portfolios of Milton's photography and Teacher's Guides to help walk a teacher thru classroom projects. The Teacher's Guide is also in Spanish.

We are developing a listing from cameras to all the critical darkroom materials that Milton used--from film developer to burning and dodging tools. Included will be scans of the darkroom with chemical charts, retouching aid and more.

Milton's Work on Exhibit at the Seneca-Iroquois National Museum

From the Western Door to the Lower West Side with photographs by Milton Rogovin and poetry by Native American Eric Gansworth will be on exhibit at the Seneca-Iroquois National Museum in Salamanca, NY.

Exhibit Dates: April 14 - July 10, 2010
An opening reception will take place on the April 14th, exact times TBA. Milton Rogovin plans to be at the reception.

This exhibition coincides with a new publication of poetry by Eric Gansworth of Canisius College, Buffalo, NY, illustrated with Milton Rogovin’s photographs of Native Americans of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) community of Western New York and Ontario, Canada. The photographs are documents of contemporary life and the social history on the reservations outside of Buffalo, near the Cattaraugus, Tonawanda and Tuscarora reservations and the Lower West Side of Buffalo. Specific tribes include the Seneca, Mohawk and the Tuscarora. The photographs were taken between 1963 and 1993.

The book can be purchased online in the Rogovin Store.

Welcome to the Milton Rogovin Blog

Social documentary photographer Milton Rogovin, now 100 years old, has been likened to the great social documentary photographers of the 19th and 20th Centuries, Lewis Hine and Jacob Riis. His photographs are in the Library of Congress, the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Center for Creative Photography and other distinguished institutions around the world. His work speaks of the humanity of working people, the poor and the forgotten ones.

News, articles, events and media will be posted here. Follow us and stay tuned!
