Throughout his life, Milton Rogovin has helped Americans see, for some time as an optometrist, but more importantly as a socially-concerned documentary photographer. Rogovin has spent over 50 years photographing those who are seldom seen, including subjects such as Native Americans and miners from all over the world. However, the photographer’s life-long dedication to workers and their families remains predominant in his practice, and is exemplified by his 30-year triptych series from Buffalo, New York where he still resides today. In these difficult economic times we could use more photographers like Rogovin, whose craft and conviction elevates his subjects rather than himself.
“This is the only exhibit in existence that shows every major series that Milton Rogovin ever did,” says his son Mark, who will be speaking about his fathers work on November 3, at 4:30 PM in the Fine Arts Building’s Presentation room. The exhibit runs through November 13, 2010 at the Ralph Arnold Fine Arts Annex, 1032 W. Sheridan Road located at Loyola’s Lake Shore Campus.
