Roeg Cohen was born in Toronto, Canada. He now lives and works in New York City.

 

How did the idea for the series come about?

 

For me, the idea is always the subject. I just met Scarlett that day. I didn’t preconceive what she would be like, so the idea is in the results.

 

How did your shoot with Scarlett go?

 

It went well. Scarlett is really easy to shoot.

 

Can we photograph the female body differently in a more powerful way?

 

I think there’s many ways to photograph the female body. There’s also many ways for those images to be interpreted, and misinterpreted. Even the word ‘powerful’ in the question can be taken to mean different things.

 

What inspires you?

 

I’m most inspired when I’m out of the city, and driving in wide open spaces.

 

How would you define beauty?

 

I don’t have a specific definition for beauty. It’s something I feel in the moment, and it changes all the time.

 

Film or digital?

 

Mostly film.

 

What makes you happy?

 

Taking pictures of Horses in the middle of nowhere.

 

What’s next for you?

 

In November a series of Horse Diptychs I did for a book will be coming out. The book is a travelogue made up with the work of different artist, and mediums. I’m also going to start self publishing small editions of books.
