About This Series

Milton and Anne Rogovin began visiting Mexico in the early 1950s. Milton photographed in Campeche, Chiapas, Oaxaca, and the Yucatan. Milton photographed at a health clinic, at Mayan ruins, and at outdoor markets, where the favorite of the series, "The Iguana Seller (photo ID: Early_Mexico_001)", was taken. They joined printmaker Raul Anguiano, of the Taller de Graphica Popular in Mexico City, for a field trip to document some of Mexico's indigenous peoples.

A selection of those images are shown here.
