Renowned Canadian artist Lynne Cohen has been photographing interior spaces ― laboratories, offices, health spas, classrooms, shooting ranges ― often wryly humorous, sometimes bleak, with an element of suspense and of uneasiness. Her large-format photographs are devoid of people but not of human presence. Through the seemingly fictional quality of these spaces, the purposes of which are as often as not ill-defined, Cohen creates a cross between documentary photography and artifice, sense and nonsense, the ordinary and dream-like. Her vision is informed by a deep feeling for the mystery in the ordinary: what is on the surface but out of sight.
