Mark Cohen at James Danziger Gallery

A retrospective of the work of street photographer Mark Cohen is up at James Danziger Gallery in Chelsea through June 20.  Cohen often takes an aggressive approach to photographing his subjects, moving towards them with the camera stretched away from his body until it is mere inches from the subject's face. The off-kilter framing and fragmentary rendering of passers-by on the street creates images which feel especially alive and spontaneous. Cohen's manner of shooting  may be intrusive, but his results range from the unexpectedly intimate to the surreal.
