About Milton's Poetry
In 1998, at the encouragement of his wife Anne, Milton Rogovin wrote seventy poems, each relating to a single photograph or a set of photographs taken by Rogovin. In 2009 a new film and book were made to highlight Milton’s poetry:
Picture Man: the Poetry of Photographer Milton Rogovin
Film still from "Picture Man: The Poetry of Photographer Milton Rogovin".
At age 89, Milton selected a number of his special images to write poems about, wanting to express in writing something more about his photographs. This 20-minute documentary allows you to hear Milton read some of these poems. "The poems themselves might be alright and my photographs, of course I love them—but together it brings it up to a higher level." The 20 min. DVD was produced by The Rogovin Collection.
