    Just finished watching a documentary "The Rich Have Their Own Photographers" about Milton Rogovin. A fascinating story. Born in 1909 and died 2011. He photographed the poor and disadvantaged all over the USA and other parts of the world. Wonderful B&W work which need no explanation at all.....the subjects and his photography speak for themselves. He called it "Photographing the truth"

    I'd never heard of him. Glad I have now.
