Publisher's Description
Buffalo, New York, is home to Milton Rogovin, a photographer whose work has created a searing portrait of life on the city's West Side over three decades of transition. His haunting portraits depict an often overlooked aspect of the country's social history-the lived experience of working-class communities whose cultural expression and everyday struggles rarely make the day's headlines or wind their way into the chapters of history. Milton Rogovin: The Forgotten Ones is a celebration of Rogovin's life's work, published in conjunction with an exhibit at the New York Historical Society. The book includes a selection of single portraits in Buffalo from the 1950s through the 1980s, and eighteen remarkable 'Quarters,' sequences of pictures and interview text, tracing the same subjects through four decades. A foreword by Davy Isay and afterword by photographer Harvey Wang pay tribute to Milton Rogovin's remarkable courage, integrity, and persistence. At ninety-three, his dedication to his art and tireless commitment to issues of social justice have set a standard that will not soon be equaled.
