In Search of Red and Other Stories: From the Collection of Peter J. Cohen
Opening March 11, 2016
Opening March 11, we are proud to bring a selection of found photography from the archives of prominent New York City collector Peter J. Cohen in a show entitled In Search of Red and Other Stories. This unique show will feature only vernacular color photography with an emphasis on the color red. Hand-tinted photos from his collection will also be highlighted.
Cohen started buying up snapshots and vernacular photos almost twenty-five years ago, and had amassed a substantial collection in that time. Says Cohen, “I always bought what I liked. Only years later when Hannah Lifson started to help me organize them did I realize that I had been collecting certain categories and topics, such as Dangerous Women, The Three Graces, People on Poles and Trees, Up The Roof, and many others.”
Photographs from his collection have been exhibited in the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, among others including his photobook Dangerous Women which was in The Cleveland Museum of Art presents DIY: Photographers and Books in 2012. Presently he has a showing of his collection, Unfinished Stories at Museum of Fine Arts, Boston up until February 28, 2016.
