"Art Galleries refer to me as a photographer, but Photographers refer to me as an Artist!"
John Neville Cohen.
"..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's pictures really make quite a statement! They add a bright new dimension to any wall. Sophisticated, original, always a talking point, they intrigue, yet remain intelligible to all.
Limited to editions of only 8, they have great investment potential too! Not yet one of the big names, but his exhibitions to date are impressive. Now is the best time for astute buyers to buy, considering how unique his pure photographic technique and his concepts really are. http://www.artist-john-cohen.net
A keen collector with Trudy, John designed and published 'The Cohen Collection' of Asian antiques (645 colour photos) of fine Japanese and Chinese antique; netsuke, inro, ojime, snuff bottles, pendants & jade carvings. All fully described by renowned experts Neil K. Davey + Robert Hall. An essential reference work for the serious collector and easy to use. Also John's father's out of print book 'In Search of Netsuke and Inro' by George Cohen is fully included at http://www.jncohen.com
John has written a number of articles for new collectors providing, invaluable information for collectors of Asian antiques. He describes how to avoid the most common mistakes when buying Asian antiques, particularly netsuke, inro, snuff bottles and jade. http://www.jncohen.net/antiques/articles.htm
A Free 'Special Effects' pure Photographic Course is available about his invented way of 'Painting with Light'. It still is amazing to see what can be done, without any expensive equipment, computer, or darkroom, with both film or digital cameras, everything has been achieved with projectors - the projector really is a magical, magic lantern! http://www.jncohen.net/photmagi/actual.html
'Painting With Light' is a pure photographic technique invented by John,
well before anyone had computers.
"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
