DAILY PIC: “Flying School” (1980), one of the classic photos from Lynne Cohen’s 1988 show called “Occupied Territories” that’s now being restaged at Higher Pictures gallery in New York. (The book of the same name is also being reissued). Cohen was one of the pioneers of the neo-documentary trend in fine-art photography, in which content seemed to matter much more than form – but where no single take on a subject was ever specified. Sometimes it seems as though she’s merely prying the front wall off a room, and letting us see what’s inside. (Image courtesy Higher Pictures)
