Photoblog Review – Thierry Cohen

Are you a fan of astrophotography?

Born in 1963,  51 year-old Thierry Cohen has been working as a professional photographer since 1985 and is  a pioneer in the use of digital techniques. He lives and works in Paris. Through his eyes, you can feel the breath of the cities, the soul of light and are able to embrace the beauty of the world. One of his recent projects, ‘Villes éteintes (Darkened Cities)’ shows us what we might see if the sights we know were to be illuminated purely by the stars.

In the words of Cohen, the loss of starry skies due to pollution have created urbanites who “forget and no longer understand nature. To show him stars is to help him dream again.”
