Living Evidence: Lynne Cohen & Roger Mertin

Living Evidence brings together two mid-career North American artists using photography: Lynne Cohen of Ottawa, Ontario and Roger Martin of Rochester, New York. Both began exhibiting seriously in the early 1970s. They have in common the use of straight photographic images to record narrow bands of facts in our personal environments, and to examine how those facts communicate social information.
