Newport resident, Matthew Cohen is a professional sailor as well as an award winning and internationally recognized nautical/adventure photographer. His subjects include sky, sea, coastline, and sailing vessels. Taking photographs from helicopters and the tops of masts, Cohen uses Canon professional lenses and digital cameras to capture the beauty and ingenuity of sailing vessels. He frequently takes his photographs from extreme angles and uncommon vantage points, abstracting and aestheticizing his subject. As a result, the photographs of common nautical subjects, such as bows, masts, jibes, and rigging, ultimately take on a unique and extraordinary presence.
