Never formally trained as a photographer, Cohen has nevertheless managed to produce a stunning body of work that is deceptively neutral at the same time. In her own words she describes her pictures as having ‘a cool, dispassionate edge. It makes them seem immaculately conceived while camouflaging the all-but-incomprehensible stories they seem to convey.’ Once the viewer scratches under the surface they realise the perturbing images expose forbidding interiors that embrace mechanisms of control and surveillance. Some 100 full-page colour photographs, are collected here for the first time and introduced by a short essay exploring various aspects of Cohen’s oeuvre.
