     Location travel is common for Stewart. He has worked in more than forty countries. Recent assignments have taken him to Macau, the UK, the Arctic and Antarctic (Stewart’s seventh continent to visit for his photographic work). Stewart is concluding work on his second monograph, titled Innocent Bystanders, a series of diptychs that focus on people and places in a way that emphasizes the mysterious nature of a traveler’s life in a cinematic style. The book is slated for publication in 2015. Recent exhibitions of his fine artwork have included “Dark Elves” and “Ice.”

     Winner of over fifty top industry awards and numerous other honors, Stewart Cohen’s work has appeared in major advertising and photography publications, and has been exhibited in museums, galleries and corporate offices across the United States.
