About David-Emmanuel Cohen
I am specialized in urban landscapes and architecture photography. "There must be a reason" as David Lynch would say. But above all, it's because I love cities, and what they emanate and give off. I love images. And when people have emotions when looking at what I do. I am happy. Quick Story: I was born in Geneva, Switzerland, around three decades ago. I draw since my young age, and acquire my first photo camera at the age of seven. That was a very flat camera, and I was convinced that it was spy technology. Since then, my fascination for images, and my art practice have never ceased. I make images. I love them. And I enjoy very much when people have emotions looking at what I do. I entered the National Superior Fine Arts School of Paris (l'Ecole Nationale SupÃ©rieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris) to complete my approach of art and my techniques. I had the opportunity to create with a lot of different medias, such as a super-8 experimental movie, a photographs art book, classical drawings and a short fiction movie, as well as a human size sound and light installation. It has been an incredible, rich and rewarding experience. I supplemented my training at the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles as a grant holder. While discovering this city, where I shot a short movie, I have established an utterly new relation to the metropolitan architecture and to urban spaces. My scale notions had changed. I now live and work in Paris, and I always love to make images around the world. If you'd like to contact me, please email me (you can find my email on the 'Welcome' and the 'Resume' page of this site) and I promise, I will get back to you. David-Emmanuel
