Social documentary photographs by Milton Rogovin
ARTstor is collaborating with The Rogovin Collection to share approximately 300 images of Milton Rogovin’s social documentary photography. Milton Rogovin (b. 1909) is best known for his portraits of the poor and working class, and his depictions of their lives, communities, and working conditions.

For over thirty years Rogovin photographed the working people and ethnic communities in the Buffalo area. He later explored the plight of workers, particularly miners, in Appalachia. In 1983, Rogovin expanded his “Family of Miners” series to include workers in Scotland, France, Spain, Germany, Czechoslovakia, Cuba, Mexico, China, and Zimbabwe.
