Photographer Milton Rogovin, a former optometrist who documented the lives of poor and working class people in his hometown of Buffalo, as well as in Appalachia and elsewhere, has died of natural causes at the age of 101. See an audio slideshow narrated by Rogovin and read his obituary at the New York Times. “All my life I’ve focused on the poor,” he said in 2003. “The rich ones have their own photographers.”

Just discovered your blog - love it! And I love this post - photographers like Rogovin are few and far between.

Thanks for the inspiration!
