About the Artist
Karen Cohen graduated high school and enrolled in the Germain School of Photography in NYC and completed the two year certification course in Professional Photography. Forty years later, her camera is always with her to capture moments that are rare and common, ordinary and extraordinary. Her past experience in darkroom color and black and white photo printing enables her to digitally manipulate images to produce various effects, adding subtracting and layering.
Versatile in landscape, documentary, portraits, live performance, publicity, commercial, architecture and candid photographs, Cohen’s work has been published in various magazines such as Trouser Press, Rock Scene, Charlotte Taste, the Hill Rag, and more. Her rock and roll photo-journals in New Jersey’s music/trade magazine, the Aquarian Weekly, were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Library archives in 2012.
Karen Cohen is a photojournalist, art curator, co-chair and member of Capitol Hill Art League, The Center for Fine Art Photography, and Women’s Caucus for the Arts/DC Chapter. Her hobbies include travel, organic gardening, rock and roll, and volunteering in the DC community.
