The New York Times’s Lens blog, devoted to photography and film and other visual media, is today featuring the work of Jem Cohen, a moviemaker who has also been wielding a Polaroid camera in New York City for the past three decades. He specializes in distant, somewhat mysterious images of urban decay and similar scenes of loss, and works those little square frames extremely well. (He appears to shoot mostly Type 600 film.) Slideshow at the link above; he’s also got a film running at the Jewish Museum, on Fifth Avenue in New York, through March 25.
