About This Image

Charles Rotkin with his camera in a helicopter.

In the early 1940s, Rotkin was selected to become one of several prominent photographers in a team assembled by Roy Stryker of the Farm Security Administration. But he was drafted into the Army before he could join that group. After World War II, he became a magazine photographer, contributing to Time, Life, Fortune, Newsweek, Sports Illustrated and other publications. He gained particular renown for his work as an aerial photographer. Rotkin was the author of numerous photographic books, including Puerto Rico: Caribbean Crossroads (University of Puerto Rico, 1947), Europe: An Aerial Closeup (Lipincott, 1962), and USA: An Aerial Closeup (Crown, 1968).
