In this collaboration between two celebrated artists, Native American poet Eric Gansworth has written a book-length cycle of poems that interact with Milton Rogovin's photographs to form a unique experience, blending the written word and visual images. The poems and the photographs, taken over a period of forty years, reflect the journey from the Western Door of Seneca reservation culture--a culture distinctly different--to the lifestyles of Buffalo's Lower West Side.
Eric Gansworth's most recent book is "A Half-Life of Cardio-Pulmonary Function."
Milton Rogovin has been photographing those he refers to as "the forgotten ones" for over five decades.
