About the Speaker
David Elliot Cohen  is at the leading edge of digital photography, having published his work in over 70 books including the hugely popular Day in the Life and America 24/7 series.

Cohen's America 24/7 Project [masked]) was the largest documentary photography project in history. 25,000 digital photographers participated, including 4,000 professionals, from all fifty states. The project produced 53 illustrated books — a national book, books for all 50 states plus Dogs 24/7 and Cats 24/7. The America 24/7 Project also launched 24/7 Media's groundbreaking Custom Cover technology, which has allowed more than 80,000 buyers to put their own digital pictures on the cover of 24/7 books.

Cohen has received many awards including:
  • Innovation in Photography Award from the American Society of Media Photographers
