"Art Galleries refer to me as a photographer, but Photographers refer to me as an Artist!"
    John Neville Cohen.

    "..regarded as one of Britain's most original photographers" The Times.

    "A woman's face was exquisitely metamorphosed with the cup of a yellow tulip - a Femme - Fleur Picasso might have perpetrated had he taken to photography” Arts Revue.

    John's pictures really make quite a statement! They add a bright new dimension to any wall. Sophisticated, original, always a talking point, they intrigue, yet remain intelligible to all.

    Limited to editions of only 8, they have great investment potential too! Not yet one of the big names, but his exhibitions to date are impressive. Now is the best time for astute buyers to buy, considering how unique his pure photographic technique and his concepts really are. http://www.artist-john-cohen.net

    A keen collector with Trudy, John designed and published 'The Cohen Collection' of Asian antiques (645 colour photos) of fine Japanese and Chinese antique; netsuke, inro, ojime, snuff bottles, pendants & jade carvings. All fully described by renowned experts Neil K. Davey + Robert Hall. An essential reference work for the serious collector and easy to use. Also John's father's out of print book 'In Search of Netsuke and Inro' by George Cohen is fully included at http://www.jncohen.com

    John has written a number of articles for new collectors providing, invaluable information for collectors of Asian antiques. He describes how to avoid the most common mistakes when buying Asian antiques, particularly netsuke, inro, snuff bottles and jade. http://www.jncohen.net/antiques/articles.htm

    A Free 'Special Effects' pure Photographic Course is available about his invented way of 'Painting with Light'. It still is amazing to see what can be done, without any expensive equipment, computer, or darkroom, with both film or digital cameras, everything has been achieved with projectors - the projector really is a magical, magic lantern! http://www.jncohen.net/photmagi/actual.html

    Painting With Light – Present
    I am currently producing large (150cm longest side) original pictures created as limited editions for sale worldwide. Each of these pictures were first created by my unique method of 'Painting With Light', since then I have improved, or in some cases created a totally new digital version. They are all mounted on aluminum bonded with 6mm acrylic glass and appear to float off the wall (no frame is really required). You can choose any size you wish for each picture (but they are restricted to just 8 regardless of the size).

    Most Recent Quotes: -

    "John N. Cohen's artwork incorporates several genres--ready-made objects, digital photography and Impressionist style of light painting - to create a striking and surreal effect that has a strong impact upon the viewer." Claudia Moscovici

    "I think the pictures are stunning"
    Simon Dolan - SJD Accountancy. UK

    "I love your work. It is quite unique and inventive, painterly too."
    Barney Davey - Publishes books, newsletters, blogs and presents workshops and seminars for visual artists.

    Sometimes the desired picture's colours just do not fit in with the décor. So I am prepared, without any obligation, to create a new picture, especially for you, based on the picture of your choice, but this new study will then feature any predominant colour required. Your more discerning clients will appreciate that each picture will still be a John Neville Cohen original work of art that will have far more value, than just a manipulated copy print taken from a painting.

    I also offer my photography for decorative design as part of a product (where the picture is incorporated as an essential part of the product). As an example see the 'worktop savers' at http://www.jncohen.net/photo2/0-APD.htm#product
