Lynn Cohen | Occupied Territory

A new entry for this exciting section of our blog: Books purchased by*, gifted to or lusted after by Wallflowerians.

"During the ’70s and ’80s, Cohen turned her view-camera toward classrooms, science laboratories, testing facilities, waiting rooms, and other interior spaces where function triumphs over aesthetics. In cool, functional offices, futuristic reception areas, lifeless party rooms, and escapist motel rooms, Cohen surveys a society of surface, contradiction, and social engineering..."

An early tour-de-force of topographic interior photography, the spaces documented by Cohen act like depressing sculptural experiments and the recent re-edition features new unseen works.
