PDN Video Pick: Milton Rogovin–The Forgotten Ones

Milton Rogovin, who died last month at the age of 101, discovered his talent for photography in his 40s, and used it to dignify the lives of the disenfranchised, the poor, and the working class in his native Buffalo and beyond. Rogovin’s work and life are the subject of a touching 11-minute documentary that Harvey Wang filmed when Rogovin was 93. The film won Best Documentary Short at the 2003 Tribeca Film Festival, and is well worth the watch.
