Joel Cohen • Artist Statement
Shapes, shadows, textures and angles are the essence of my art.
Looking thru a camera viewfinder since the age of twelve has trained me to see images worth recording dozens of times each day. The images I shoot are heavily influenced by my training as a graphic artist. This visual training has enabled me to evolve as a photographic artist.
To this day, every time I see something worth recording, I get excited and can’t wait to see the finished print. Manipulation is kept to a minimum and composition is all done in the viewfinder to preserve the integrity of what I see. There are so many beautiful, interesting and dramatic images occurring naturally, that I see no need to manufacture them into something else.
The success of my work is the result of learning to see the image thru the eye of the camera.
