Biography:

Milton Rogovin was a recipient of the Cornell Capa Award as part of the 2007 Infinity Awards.

A consummate photojournalist and dedicated activist, Rogovin's lens has illuminated social issues for more than 60 years: globally, the plight of the miner in ten nations; locally, the decline of the steel industry and the struggle of the working people of his home town of Buffalo, New York, among many other focuses. His work has been featured in more than 60 solo exhibitions, and he received the W. Eugene Smith Award for Documentary Photography in 1983. Rogovin's photographs are in the collections of major museums around the world, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Biblothèque Nationale, Paris; Getty Museum, Los Angeles; and Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
