About This Series

In 1972, a patient from Milton Rogovin's optometric office invited him to visit her home, just a few blocks from his office. Milton was captivated by the home and community. The Lower West Side series evolved as he and Anne began photographing the six square block area. This marked the beginning of a major three decades long study. The Lower West Side series evolved into Doubles, Triptychs and Quartets. The neighborhood was ethnically diverse, including African Americans, Puerto Ricans, Native Americans, and Italians. Every weekend Milton and Anne would return to the Lower West Side and photograph the people in the neighborhood. They got to meet and photograph people in their homes, in their backyards, and on street corners. When the Rogovins returned to photograph, they brought back images printed from the week before.
