Meet Dallas based Photographer, Director and APA member, Stewart Cohen. Who are your top 5 favorites that you’re following on Instagram?
Top 5 out of the 6000 I follow? That is like asking which one is my favorite child. I follow photographers, filmmakers, models, designers, zines, hash tags of places I love. Instagram is the new encyclopedia of pop culture. I love it!! What about @toiletpapermagazineofficial check that out Who were your biggest influences?
To name a few.
Robert Capa, Eugene Smith, Garry Winogrand, Henri Cartier Bresson, Helmut Newton, Peter Lindbergh, Jay Maisel, Ralph Gibson. Also my step-Dad who was a salesman and taught by example that life is about sales, subtle or not. You are always selling something. What 3 words describe your photography style?
Honest, quirky, lighthearted
What was the best piece of advice you were given starting out?
It is a journey, not a destination. Some days are better than others but they are all better than hanging sheetrock. What do you do when you get stuck?
Exercise is a great way to get past stuck. I always keep pushing through and know that blue sky will emerge at one point. What is your best marketing advice for your peers?
Be nice, make friends, be out-going, don’t burn bridges and put your money where your mouth is. I have always bought placement in magazines that I though my market was attune to. I want the world to see what I shoot.

A photographic survey by Major Morris (1921 -2016)

September 5 – October 1

Opening Reception: Thursday, September 5, 11:00 am – 1:00 pm Gallery Conversation: Thursday, September 5, 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm Weekend Reception: Saturday, September 7, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
SWC Art Gallery

In Major’s words, “In my photographic experience I have always been drawn to capturing images of what life was for me as I groped my way through an underprivileged youthful existence; what life continues to be for so many young people living in circumstances similar to those of my early childhood, and in capturing those images, expressing what I feel about the strength and beauty of those children who refuse to be victims. What I see is the reality of the physical circumstances into which these youngsters have been brought to life. What I see is the indomitable spirit that feeds the imagination, the curiosity, the need for doing that is natural to these and all youngsters during their formative years. I see the possibilities for growth, for the excitement of learning, for the formation of dreams that will take them up and out into productive, contributive lives. What I see is the need for the dreams to be nurtured! That is what my photographs are about!”

All events are free and open to the public. $3 parking permits are required.

Made possible by the Southwestern College Foundation.
