Roger Cabán


Roger Cabán was born in Puerto Rico but moved to New York City as a child. He spent his career photographing both Isabela, Puerto Rico and Manhattan, New York. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, Cabán was active in community-based organizations and activism, including working as a co-founder of En Foco, an initiative created to provide more support to photographers of African, Asian, Latino, Native American and Pacific Islander heritage. Cabán’s Untitled II is part of The IRT Prayer Book, a photo-essay book on the New York subway system with photographs by Cabán and accompanying text by playwright Dolores Prida.
