Lecture: Photographer Brian Cohen

Connelly Auditorium

Photographer Brian Cohen will present a lecture on the Marcellus Shale Documentary Project, an exhibit currently on display in the Sol Mednick Gallery and the Open Lens Gallery. The lecture is free and open to the public.

A joint project with the Gershman Y, the Marcellus Shale Documentary Project features work by Cohen as well as Noah Addis, Nina Berman, Scott Goldsmith, Lynn Johnson and Martha Rial, and is curated by Laura Domencic, director of Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. The project is dedicated to the photographic documentation of the processes, practices and real-life outcomes of Marcellus Shale drilling in Pennsylvania.

Cohen originally hails from London, England. A graduate of the Royal College of Art, he has lived and worked in Africa, the Middle East, Europe and the United States, and has exhibited his work internationally, including at the Museum of Modern Art in Oxford, England, and most recently at the Pittsburgh International Airport. Cohen holds a Ph.D. in Art History from Binghamton University at the State University of New York. His latest work focuses on documenting Pittsburgh’s transition to a post-industrial city. He lives in Pittsburgh, Pa., with his wife and four children.
