Based in New York, Charles Cohen participated in the Core Fellowship program at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston after earning his MFA in photography at the Rhode Island School of Design and his BA in Anthropology at The University of Chicago.
In addition to traditional photography Charles uses video, digital imaging and sculpture to explore various aspects of a central theme—the conflation of opposites.
Charles’s work has been exhibited in New York, Paris, Boston, Houston, San Francisco, Portland, Lisbon, Berlin and Miami. It can be seen in several books including: Digital Art by Christiane Paul published by Thames & Hudson, and CURVE: The Female Nude Now by Dailey, Meghan et al, published by Rizzoli, 100 New York Photographers by Cynthia Dantzic, and Art/Porn: A History of Seeing and Touching by Kelly Dennis.
His work is in the collections of The Fogg Art Museum at Harvard University, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, The Portland Art Museum in Oregon among other institutions.
