Fine Quality Large Exhibition Pictures
Limited to Editions of Just 8

Over 20 Impressive One-Man Exhibitions; 2 held in New York, 4 in London, The Edinburgh Festival, many other UK and USA Cities

"regarded as one of Britain's most original photographers."   The Times.

"A woman's face was exquisitely metamorphosed with the cup of a yellow tulip - a Femme - Fleur Picasso
might have perpetrated had he taken to photography."  
  Arts Revue.

"John N. Cohen's artwork incorporates several genres--ready-made objects, digital photography and impressionist style of light painting - to create a striking and surreal effect that has a strong impact upon the viewer."  Claudia Moscovici 

Favourable reviews and comments have been received from, amongst others: -  
Cecil Beaton 
C.B.E., Sir William Russell Flint R.A., Lady Clementine Spencer-Churchill,
Sir George F. Pollock Bt., M.A., F.R.P.S., F.R.S.A.

John Cohen won the London Salon Trophy in 1967 (this was the first time this prestigeous award had ever been awarded for a colour photograph) for a girl's portrait, blended with a negative of a tulip, all achieved as a transparency titled 'Spirit of Spring' (this was the first ever transparency that consisted of both a positive and a negative image on the same film emulsion).

John held a number of One-man exhibitions in both USA and the UK (many sponsored by Kodak).   Now having retired he has had another look at these original old photographs and with his digital skills has carefully improved some of those pictures to sell as Limited edition pictures.  As an interest in his retirement he intends also to create new pictures.

"Indeed, since the photographic image is made by the action of light, truth to light is truth to the medium of photography!  All John Cohen's photographs are made, simply and solely, by the use of light.  His magic is the magic of the luminous, his poetry is that of the chiaroscuro.  The attractions of his work is all the greater for the purity of the photographic technique, and its appeal all the more universal for being couched in an imagery common to all men and intelligible to all." Sir George F. Pollock Bt., M.A., F.R.P.S., F.R.S.A.

"I use pure photography to express ideas, or thoughts, rather than reality.  I trust that my pictures will intrigue, cause interest and be appreciated as very original art works.  My technique involves photographing projected images rather than computer manipulation.”  John N. Cohen

"Uso puramente fotografía para expresar ideas o pensamientos, más que la realidad.  Confío que mis creaciones intriguen, provoquen interés y que sean apreciadas como obras de arte originales.  Mi técnica implica el fotografiar imagenes proyectadas sin hacer uso de ningun tipo de manipulación computarizada."  John N. Cohen

The New Digital Pictures and Abstract Studies
All the new and the abstract pictures began with a photograph, then with digital tools John has created these original pictures. Often the photograph used for these abstracts is a solarized close up, but none of his pictures have ever involved fractal art methods.
