Cape Cod Photography
Encountering the light on Cape Cod has become a regular practice for me. In every weather condition, in all states of mind, I organize my days around the moments when the Cape Cod light is full of something with which I identify. After hours of shooting, I use specialized equipment and software to create the image, then use highly refined processes to make sure that the final printed image contains as much of the truth of the moment in it as I remember it.
I am deeply moved when people tell me that my photographs have touched them. I have been told that my work has a healing effect, that the images connect people to nature, to themselves, and to their own vibrant sense of love. I always look forward to the next time I will be able to immerse myself in the marshes, the towns or the beaches, and bring back more evidence of the love that connects us to the world and to each other. The beauty I encounter always humbles me and makes me grateful for people, for light and for everything it reaches.
About Elyssa Cohen
I grew up on a beef-cattle farm in Pennsylvania, where nature, the animals, the farm and the seasons taught me about unconditional love for the environment and everything in it. I grew up in an artistic household, the proud granddaughter of a bass trombonist who played for the New York Philharmonic. My grandfather also founded the American Brass quintet and dedicated his life to playing music in New York and across the globe. His legacy filled me with a deep love for the beautiful and creative works we humans are capable of creating.
I was classically trained initially as a painter, then moved to Cape Cod from Philadelphia after college. I discovered that photography was the instrument through which I could express my joy of color and form. I fell in love with the light on Cape Cod, which has a magical and emotional element that I have never experienced anywhere else.
