Janice Rogovin

I am a documentary photographer, filmmaker and educator based in Boston. Throughout my career, I’ve received grants and fellowships in support of
my works, including a National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Visual Artist Fellowship. My short film, 48 YEARS GOING ON 50, a personal documentary
about my parents’ relationship, screened at the Institute of Contemporary Art Boston. My first feature film, THE MAN IN A COWBOY HAT, tells the story of Carlos Arredondo, a Costa Rican immigrant, whose oldest son Alex died fighting in the war in Iraq. This film, about war’s impact on families, premiered at the Boston Public Library in Copley Square, and screened at the Newburyport Documentary Film Festival and the Boston Latino
International Film Festival. I’ve worked as a teaching artist in public schools with urban youth for decades. As of this writing, I’m working with former students on a documentary film about the impact of photography on their life and career choices.
