The Bonds Between Us: A Celebration of Family
White Pine Press, 2001 - Photography - 96 pages
Portraits of families from around the world by this acclaimed documentary photographer.
Seventy duotones portray people acclaimed documentary photographer Milton Rogovin met as he traveled the world. These are not glitzy celebrities seen in magazines; they are common people, both working-class and poor, for whom family is true wealth. Taken over five decades, Rogovin, rather than taking candid shots or placing his subjects in a formal pose, let them determine how they would be photographed. What was created was an intimate window on their lives that revealed how they wanted to be perceived and recorded for posterity.
Milton Rogovin's photographs are in many major collections, and his archives were recently acquired by the Library of Congress. A true national treasure, Rogovin, now in his ninth decade, received the W. Eugene Smith Memorial Award in 1983.
