New York Love Affair

What Cohen offers with this collection of altered photographs is a more radical gesture than it may at first appear to be. She's insisting on New York City as a dowager queen, no longer young but all the more splendid for marching erect, in full regalia, into middle age. Cohen's New York is simultaneously her own and a revival of a past city-or, more accurately, a revival of a past perception of a city-that glows, that shimmers, that holds within itself dazzling brightnesses and deep, deep darks. Cohen's pictures, and the city they depict, are significant beauties.
