the work of Mark Cohen

Photography // Tuesday, May 06, 2014
Mark Cohen is often forgotten as one of the most inventive street photographers. It’s easier to make up close images in big cities with crowds. Mark Cohen works in smaller suburban areas in an extremely fragmented and graphic style. He points out the specific things of interest, creating surreal compositions with body parts. Often he seeks out children and youth culture in oddly sexualized images of children in bathing suits or a group of boys sucking on cigarettes and lollipops. The compositions are daring and nightmarish.
