Where to buy … Mark Cohen: True Color

Mark Cohen’s photographs of Wilkes-Barre, Pa., capture suburban America in the 1970s.

Hasted Hunt New York

Future filmmakers seeking to learn what suburban America looked like in the 1970s could do worse than turn to Mark Cohen’s photographs of Wilkes-Barre, Pa. Old women wear their hair wrapped in head scarves. Young mothers wear floral-print dresses. And lots of polyester-clad kids smile out from lush prints that often seem like the most beautiful Polaroids ever taken. Cohen took these pictures in his 30s, but a recurring theme is the fleeting nature of youth. In one, a boy who couldn’t be older than 12 joyously takes a drag off a cigarette, while a companion sucks on a lollipop. 529 W. 20th St., (212) 627-0006, through Aug. 28. Prices: $6,500 a print.
