Documentary Photographer Milton Rogovin Dies At 101


January 19, 2011 /Photography News/ Internationally-renowned social documentary photographer Milton Rogovin died on Tuesday at his North Buffalo home at age 101. 

Rogovin traveled throughout the world, documenting the lives of the poor, the dispossessed, the working class. His most acclaimed project, though, has been “The Forgotten Ones", sequential portraits taken over three decades of over a hundred families who resided on Buffalo’s lower west side. The project was begun in 1972 and completed in 2003, when Rogovin was 93.

A master collection of 4,000 of his images are stored at the Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona in Tucson. In addition, all his negatives and contact sheets, plus 1,300 prints and 20,000 pieces of correspondence, are kept at the Library of Congress.

Rogovin reportedly had been under hospice care after suffering a mild heart attack. He is survived by his son Mark, daughter Ellen and Paula, five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
