The Rich have Their Own Photographers - Finally Available!

"This Movie Could Change the World!" - Pete Seeger

In 1957, Milton Rogovin was declared “The Top Communist in Buffalo”. In reality, he was an optometrist active registering Black voters. Refusing to be silenced, he found a new political voice, a camera. Milton began to document Buffalo’s poorest and working classes, and eventually, the world’s. Collaborating with Pablo Neruda and others at the forefront of justice movements, documenting those he considers, “The Forgotten Ones”. Through his photographs, Rogovin depicts the extreme inequalities that exist and conveys that message through beautiful works of art. But for Rogovin, his prints are his protests, his only concern is the continuing fight for social justice. Watch the trailer here:

  1. I so enjoyed watching this film and having the opportunity to listen and watch Milton and Anne. A lovely blend of seeing still images infused with the words and actions of those who appear in the film.
    thank you,
