JEFF COWEN

Jeff Cowen (b. 1966) grew up on New York’s Upper West Side and graduated in Oriental Studies from New York University and Waseda University Tokyo.

Jeff Cowen uses only analogue photography in a variety of formats from 35mm to 8 x 10. All the prints are made in his customized darkroom and his study of painting and life drawing, has had a great impact on his concept of photography. The analogue image taken by the camera is not the final product, but marks only the starting point of the artistic reflection of the motif. His chief concern is not a return to the photographic past, but rather to explore and expand the limits of the medium from a present-day perspective.

Jeff Cowen has been represented by Michael Werner Kunsthandel in Germany since 2012. His work are in numerous public and private collections. Recently, the private collection MAP from Bremen acquired a substantial body of Cowen’s work from the last 10 years.

There is nothing casual about a photograph for me. It is a balance. It must seem effortless and have a fabulous simplicity about it and at the same time, it must have this mysterious complexity.
