Each series, involving intense storyboarding and creation of characters, takes several months to create. Cohen, currently getting her master’s in fashion photography in London, enlists her friends as models and dramatically changes their appearance with heavy makeup, wigs, and costumes (or in some photos, a lack thereof). The women in her images reflect familiar Hollywood stereotypes, and Cohen attempts to capture resonant moments in their fictional lives. In the image shown above, “The Party,” from the series Hollow Heights about a town by the same name, one guest sits alone, isolated amidst chaos, seemingly full of longing and stranded from her desired destination. A sense of loneliness and discontent is palpable.
