Nadia Lee Cohen is a 22-year-old London-based photographer currently going for a BA in photography at the London College of Fashion. Eye-popping and delightful, Cohen’s photographs channel motifs of Americana and Britain from the 1950s, 60s and 70s; melodramatic hair and make-up, saturated colors, and the characters to fit. She is a master of setting the scene, styling her subjects and incorporating her own props which she spends plenty of time collecting.
This year, Cohen was selected for the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize exhibition. Her photograph, American Nightmare, is on display at the National Portrait Gallery through February 8, 2013.
