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.
