    "There is something deeply puzzling and contradictory in Lynne Cohen's artwork. It is about photography but it is not a document; it appears staged but it is about the real world, it frames ordinary interiors but shows their visual richness; it pulls you in and pushes you out; it is flat and sculptural; straightforward yet open to many readings; neutral but never dull. Unfolding since the early 1970s, Cohen's work has defied categorization. It does not fit current definitions of photography as vernacular, topographic, typological, archival or manipulated, and while borrowing ideas from pop, minimalism, and conceptual art it remains medium specific. Photography, "an artifice with no room for trickery", is her way of being in the world, of transforming what she knows into what she sees. But why is her art so slippery?..." Extrait de "Lynne Cohen and the art of understatement" par Antonella Pelizzari.
