American Paint Photo #10. Shot in August 2014.

Statistically, white people and black people are just as likely to consume drugs and marijuana. Yet the large majority of men in federal prisons are black men who are there for non-violent drug offenses. Racial profiling needs to stop. This system destroys lives and families and unnecessarily wastes billions of tax dollars.

Kim Cogan (1977, United States)

Interiors and figures

Cogan is best-known and most prolific as a painter of America’s urban environment, focusing on lesser-depicted areas rather than landmarks. His style is realist, but with very limited brushstrokes, which seperates it considerably in technique from contemporary academic realism - though the accuracy of lighting means that from middle-distance his images have a photographic quality.
