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 work speaks of the humanity of working people, the poor and the forgotten ones.
Milton’s photographs are a part of the documentary photography collections of the Library of Congress, the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Center for Creative Photography and other distinguished institutions around the world.
His photography has been published in books and journals, and celebrated in exhibits around the world. The extraordinary Chicago exhibit will include photographs never before exhibited, all originals, curated specifically for the exhibit to begin in January at Roosevelt University’s Gage Gallery. A number of events will be held in conjunction with the exhibit, including a closing as part of the National Working Class Studies Association meeting, to be held in June, 2011. Save these dates: January 20 to June 30 2011.
