"As the mechanisms and methods of communications continue to evolve, so does the concept of distance." And so begins the epilogue.
CONTACT LENS showcases select environmental portrait work from Gary Joseph Cohen's ramblings around China, Korea, Tibet and the US. The deliberate double-page pairings of portraits propose what-if encounters between complete strangers, with implicit and/or explicit affinities and dissonances charging the atmosphere.
The images in this tome span roughly from 2008 to 2010, and are the manifestation of a rapid expansion and contraction of time, place and space (geographical and personal). Front and back covers, as well as title page, were designed by international artist Sinji MaYa Jung.
