The Forgotten Ones: An Exhibition by Milton Rogovin
November 21, 2003 - January 11, 2004

This is the cover of the most recent book of Milton Rogovin's photography. Those are Genny Beer advertising displays onthe wall of this photo. Milton lives (at 93) and worked in Buffalo, New York. He worked as an optometrist until he was almost 50 and the House Un-American Activities Committee branded him The Area'a Top Red". He took up photography and shot the people in Buffalo's lower west side neighborhoods where he used to practce.

Together with his wife, Anne, they revisited manyof these same subjects over the years and their portraits will knock you out. Milton Rogovin attended the opening here in November along with his son. He has donated his photographic archives to the Library of Congress.

If you didn't make it to the show buy the book at RoCo or online. You will spend many hours with it. This was a fantastic show. Visit the RoCo site for more information.
