The first monograph of British Los Angeles based photographer Nadia Lee Cohen. Six years in the making. 100 extra unordinary portraits. It doesn’t look like a first book. It looks like a major work by a major artist. Which is because… it is. Nadia’s work is big on ambition. It is hyper-surrealist pop iconography, deeply moving, naked in its honesty, and heartbreaking.
Georgia May Jagger in Nadia’s hyperreal signature style. This is the first portrait in the book. It sets the tone for what is to come. And for also for what is about to be undone.
Because WOMEN is both hyper-surrealist pop iconography AND deeply moving. Naked in its honesty. Scarlett Carlos Clarke (above) photographed in Hampstead, North London. The pleasures and terrors of domestic comfort.
This is it then. A major monograph to end 2020 with the full force of a massive meteorite. One hundred portraits of women in one gold cloth covered superheavyweight book.
