Award-Winning LA Times Photographer Art Rogers Dies at 93

Missed this one from earlier in the week, as the obit ran on Christmas. But Art Rogers, a native Angeleno who worked for more than 40 years as a photographer for the LA Times, died earlier this month at the age of 93. Rogers was part of the LA Times team that won a Pulitzer for its coverage of the Watts riots in 1965. According to the Times obit, he once had the distinction of having 22 of his photos run in the same Sunday paper.

The Times a put together a nice slideshow of some of Rogers’ best shots in honor of his passing. Definitely worth a visit.
