Photographs, Sound-Bytes and Back Stories

Press Release ( - Sarasota, Florida - Aug 11, 2016 - Each day we see hundreds of photographs, but we rarely know the stories behind them. “Why?” a new series on the Skip Cohen University blog now features 28 artists sharing their stories behind some of the most iconic and beautiful images in professional photography.

“I had two goals when I launched this new series. First, there are too many new photographers in the profession who don’t know the leading artists and educators in the industry,” said Skip Cohen. “Second, we’ve all looked at beautiful images and read an explanation from the original artist. I wanted something different and hearing from the artists themselves adds a whole new dimension to a blog post.”
