ABOUT BENJAMIN KOHEN
"I capture what I feel. For me the power of sight is more important than artistic vision. Style becomes secondary and sometimes can even be constricting when what you're after is the inherent beauty of the moment itself. Close your eyes and take a minute to remember your life's first significant event. What you see are the images I try to capture. My tools help me craft these beautiful occasions in a creative way."
