Trailer for the documentary The Rich Have Their Own Photographers.

In 1957, Milton Rogovin was declared "The Top Communist in Buffalo." In reality, he was an optometrist active registering Black voters. Refusing to be silenced, he found a new political voice, a camera.

Milton began to document Buffalo’s poorest and working classes, and eventually, the world’s. Collaborating with Pablo Neruda and others at the forefront of justice movements, documenting those he considers, "The Forgotten Ones."

Through his photographs, Rogovin depicts the extreme inequalities that exist and conveys that message through beautiful works of art. But for Rogovin, his prints are his protests, his only concern is the continuing fight for social justice.
