Karen Cohen: Turning Fantasy into Photograph

Karen Cohen: Turning Fantasy into Photograph

By:

Arranged on a single wall in a corner of Gallery Underground, six 15 by 20 inch photographs make up Cohen’s collection. At first glance, it is hard to see what links these images together, apart from their size, the glossy metal on which they are printed, and their elusive titles. When asked what the link…

Who’s your favorite musician? Actress? What’s your favorite movie? Book? Almost everyone has a response to these questions. Kanye West. Keira Knightley. Star Wars. Harry Potter. Rarely do the answers “I don’t listen to music,” or “I don’t watch movies,” or “I don’t read” leave the questioner satisfied. Who is your favorite visual artist? To…

This February I find my heart strings pulled by a good many wonderful people, but I also find myself waxing sentimental about the physical places and spaces that have shaped me. Some of these places are far from Georgetown, others a mere stone’s throw away: Reno, NV and Lake Placid, NY; my family’s dining room…

From the moment I entered the Benoy Behl art exhibit, I was mesmerized by the colorful contrast of eye-catching art pieces that lined the stark white exhibit walls. The photographs were small in size, but upon closer examination, contained a complexity and depth that could house a variety of interpretations. The exhibit is located in…

We use photography to make a moment concrete, perfectly capture a scene, or preserve the fleeting burnt oranges and deep royal purples of a setting sunset. We are on the perpetual quest for the ideal view, setting, angle, and light, so that what we see can be transformed into a tangible, handheld snapshot. However, what…

We spend a lot of money on big, new, fancy cameras in order to capture perfection: a golden sunset over clear Caribbean waters, a young budding poppy hidden among a field of wildflowers, or the exhilarated smile after a last minute basket.
