A Candid and Glossy Look Through Alexander Coggin’s Lens

People, places and shiny things, found in the world of wealthy people.

Alexander Coggin is an American self taught artist and photographer based between London and Berlin. Formally trained in theater, Coggin’s work is infused with a detailed sensitivity to cinematic compositions, visceral imagery, and sociologically curious observations of human behaviour. His gaze and his hand-flash gravitate towards the hyper-glossy world of the wealthy, where aesthetic beauty takes priority. Here Coggin captures a wonderful contrast between the candid weirdness of his photographic subjects and the highly-staged appearance of their surroundings.

Alexander Coggin is represented in the U.K. by Making Pictures.
