About this artwork

Milton Rogovin was a lifelong champion of working people. “The rich have their photographers,” he said. “I photograph the forgotten ones.” He produced his Working People series for about a decade beginning in 1977, traveling to mines, factories, and foundries across the United States, Latin America, and Eastern Europe. Rogovin depicted each laborer in at least two settings, including on the job and at home. These two sympathetic portraits portray a man named Tremblath at work—seated in a dignified pose at the Shenango Ingot Molds Company in Pennsylvania—and relaxing in his backyard with his pregnant wife and pet rabbit.
