A Buffalo Photographer’s Dignified Look at the Passage of Time

In three decades, Milton Rogovin and his wife, Anne, captured changes in one upstate neighborhood, while also reaching deep into grand abstractions of nature and time.

Milton’s photographs from the neighborhood originated in 1972, when he was invited to visit the home of a patient, and continued as he and Anne developed relationships with others they met. The elements of personal connection and social history, implicit in Milton’s earlier images, are rendered explicit in his series “Lower West Side Triptychs” and “Lower West Side Quartets.” For those projects, the Rogovins sought out people Milton had photographed in the nineteen-seventies and photographed them again during the course of three decades

Why did you decide to exhibit the work Foreverglades on a boat? How did you come about that idea? And what were some challenges you had? And if you were to do something similar like that, again, is there anything that you would do differently?

'No Photographs': Trump's Order to White House Photographer on Jan 6

"No photographs."

Shealah Craighead rarely put down her camera when Trump was in the public eye, as the former president was particularly, and notably, fond of being in front of the camera and driving stories and ratings, Business Insider reports. But on January 6, 2021, the day of the insurrection at the Capitol, photos were conspicuously absent.

At the beginning of the pandemic, I watched a live Zoom of Sophie Calle talking to students. I believe she wanted them to be totally in the moment – since she requested that it not be recorded.
