The Poetry of Photographer Milton Rogovin

Before the week comes to an official close, we wanted to remember and celebrate the life of Milton Rogovin, a social documentary photographer who, in the tradition of Walker Evans, used his camera to champion the underprivileged – the working poor and the underclasses living in the United States and beyond. He died this past week at the old age of 101. The New York Times revisits his work in this obituary, and the short video above gives you a glimpse of the man and his body of work.
