Other photographers are known for their pictures of Los Angeles, Paris, or Tokyo. Cohen's beat is Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, his gritty, working-class hometown, but he's not exactly recording civic landmarks.

His subjects are the people he encounters on the streets, at such close range that the work would feel confrontational, even rude, if it weren't so good-natured and amused. Although these color prints are products of the all but obsolete dye-transfer process, there's nothing precious about them; Cohen's dirty realism—his eye for grime, bruises, and decay—rules. His appetite for grunge is voracious, and we end up sharing his hunger

From The New Yorker.
