Social documentary photographer Milton Rogovin has taken compelling photographs of working class and low income people over the course of 50 years (1952-2002), and on five continents. His work celebrates our common humanity, and the dignity and courage of his subjects. www.miltonrogovin.com

"Nowadays, the way things are, unless you're a celebrity or somebody real important, people don't bother to take pictures of you. Forget about taking pictures of the common person, the person that works every day - you're not important. But with Milton and Anne doing this type of work, it makes people like myself feel like somebody thinks you're important enough to be photographed...When I'm dead and gone this will still be around. People like my son will be able to sit back and say, 'This is how it was back then.' So you're not totally forgotten. You're not just an ink spot on the wall."
