Bob Rogers' interest in photography started at age twelve and he has worked creatively in that medium ever since. After college he supported himself by working as chauffeur to Ruby Keeler, driving her in a 1936 Rolls-Royce Brewster when she starred in the Broadway revival of “No, No, Nanette”. At the same time he began teaching photography at Brooklyn College and has been teaching ever since. Rogers joined the Queensborough Community College Art Department, a unit of the City University of New York, in 1971. Over the years, he has worked creatively as a photographer and has written about photography as well, publishing in diverse journals including, the Gazette des Beaux Arts, the College Art Association’s Art Journal, Visual Studies Workshop Afterimage and others. His work has been exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum and Queens Museum as well as various galleries, and is represented in public and private collections including the Allan Chasanoff Collection at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. His interest in photography led him into filmmaking and then into theatre and he has written for both theater and television. His play, “Small Potatoes”, enjoyed a successful off-Broadway run in 2000. His work can be seen at www.SalonDesRefuses.net
