A very successful paparazzo, Cohen had photographs on the front pages of such fleet street icons as The Daily Express, News of the World, Mirror, Evening Standard and Independent by the time he was 21. He photographed the rich and famous, developed professional relationships with people like Sting and David and Victoria Beckham, maintained a personal relationship with then prime minister Tony Blair, and built a reputation as a photojournalist in his hometown of London.
Cohen made the move to Israel and created a body of work attracting many of Israel’s artistic elite earning him a place in one of Tel Aviv’s most reputable spaces, Engel Gallery. Some of his most iconic images so far have included panoramic photographs set in the Negev Desert and feature carefully constructed biblical tableaus. Combining the dramatic aesthetics of Israel’s landscapes with striking portraits of individuals and painstakingly planned scenes, Cohen’s work is amongst the most creative and intriguing of Israel’s young artists. Some of Cohen’s pieces are displayed at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art of Israel as well as the home of Prince Charles.
