Bobby Rogers (b. 1992) is a visual historian, photographer and art director from Minneapolis, Minnesota. His work has broken barriers across various industries and has continued to garner the attention of publications across the globe. Rogers was named Minnesota Monthly’s Top Visual Artists to Watch in 2016, and City Pages named Rogers an Artist of the Year in 2017.

His first solo exhibition titled ‘The Blacker the Berry’ premiered at Public Functionary (2017) to wide acclaim with Juxtapoz Magazine writing, “The show is delicately complex and understated, yet unapologetically bold and confident in it’s humility.”

Rogers has premiered work at various institutions from the Minnesota Historical Society and the International Center of Photography to the Naughton Gallery in Northern Ireland. He has spoken at the Minneapolis Institute of Art, the Humprey School of Public Policy, and others.

He has also amassed a list of clientele that includes the New York Times, Apple, PAPER Magazine, Timberland, Redbull, Vox Media, Ghetto Gastro, and others.
