Striking Photos That Capture the Grit of Pennsylvania in the 1970s

Mark Cohen’s photographs of people in his native Wilkes-Barre and other working-class Pennsylvania locations were taken fast and surreptitiously – he held the flash light in one hand and the camera away from his face. He got up close and the bright lights flicked on. The photograph is taken before the subject can tense up and pose. Speed and movement are evident in his work. The pictures are full of life.

“If you’re very close to people and someone takes a swing at you, you don’t want to have your head behind a viewfinder because you can’t be aware of the situation.” Cohen explains.
