About Bob Rogers and The Bob Rogers Collection
Robert Rogers (September 5, 1944 – November 6, 2013), one of New Hampshire’s pre-eminent photography collectors, began taking photographs at the age of six, and started collecting photographs when photography was not considered a serious art form back in the late 60’s. In 1967, Bob visited the home of renowned photographer Edward Steichen who helped him to appreciate photography as a great artist medium. Bob also came to know and befriend the prominent Boston photographer John Brooks who had a studio on Newbury Street. Bob always had a tremendous eye for photography, purchasing works that he loved, rather than works solely because they were attributed to well known artists. Two years ago, the Institute exhibited work from Bob’s remarkable collection. Bob recently donated exceptional works by photography legend Dorothea Lange and New Hampshire artists Lotte Jacobi and Hope Zanes. His indelible friendship to the New Hampshire Institute of Art continues through the extraordinary photos he has gifted to the Institute. The Bob Rogers Collection is made up largely of photographs exploring portraiture, and the human condition. Most of these exquisitely printed images were created in the darkroom using the gelatin silver printing processes and serve as some of the finest examples of photographic art created in the 20th century.
