Lynne Cohen has lived and worked in Canada since 1973 and she now lives in Montreal. Since the early 1970s she has been photographing living rooms, men's clubs, classrooms, spas and military installations. Trained as a sculptor and printmaker, when Pop Art and Minimalism were dominant in the art world, she has a long-standing interest in the artificial and the everyday. She focuses on the psychological, sociological and political aspects of her subjects. But primarily she is concerned with the way things appear and function in our lives. As she once observed, "I feel as if the world can't be like it is. It seems full of finished works of art." The disorientation her photographs provoke is largely the result of the specific and mysterious nature of the places she photographs with their odd symmetries and disjunctions.
Cohen's works have been exhibited in numerous international institutions, including the Corcoran Gallery of Art (Washington, DC); International Centre of Photography (New York), Light Work, Syracuse (New York), Manes Gallery (Prague), and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. She has won many awards, the most recent one being given by the Canadian Council in 2009 and she has published 5 books of her work; Cover (2009), Occupied Territory (1987), Lost and Found (1992), No Mans Land (2001), Camouflage (2005).
