Alexander Coggin

Alexander Coggin has an utterly unique way of looking at the world. Now based in London after several years in Berlin, the American is happiest wandering the streets with his camera, feeding his visual curiosity and capturing scenes and subtexts he happens across.

With an extraordinary eye for the unusual, the unexpected and the unlikely, he captures fantastic combinations of colour and texture. The subjects change according to what he finds, but he conjures weird and wonderful compositions from even the most everyday scenarios.
A trained actor, his theatrical training still influences his image-making – he is interested in backstory, body language, and the gap between perception and reality. His bold use of flash adds a magical realism to his pictures, which wouldn’t look out of place on the big screen.
Clients include AnOther, Creative Review, The Face, FT Magazine, The Gourmand, It’s Nice That, Monocle, The New York Times, Port Magazine, Tank Magazine, Vice and Zeit Magazin.
