Photography by Leigha Cohen is on display at the New Jersey Coalition for Battered Women in Trenton. This exhibit is open by appointment only. For more information, please contact VSA/NJ.
Since 2004, Leigha Cohen has had both bipolar disorder and chronic pain including fibromyalgia and migraine headaches. When her health allows, she shoots portraits and commitment ceremonies, although most of her work focuses on capturing landscapes. Leading hospitals such as AtlantiCare and local doctors’ and lawyers’ offices have discovered her talent, purchasing much of her work.
Leigha has shown her photography in both solo and group exhibitions at venues including Gallery 125, The Trenton City Museum, M. Christina Geis Gallery, Staten Island Museum, Mana Fine Arts, and the Toms River Library. She is one of the founding members of Art Cooperative TRACx81 and a recent member of the Photographic Society of Philadelphia. A recipient of multiple competitive grants and awards, Leigha has exhibited artwork at international juried events for artists with disabilities including Artfirst! at Princeton Hospital.
