Alexander Coggin is an American artist living and working in Berlin. Alexander is self-taught in photography and his work explores an intersection of candid human behavior, street photography, and staged still life images.
But alongside all his highly slick professional work is a trove of fun, weird portraits of some of his devastatingly attractive friends. The series is a cool testament to what these cool photographer types get up to for fun. I especially enjoy is spontaneous pictures and the genuine, natural feel to them. He has an excellent eye for composition and it seems like his hand knows exactly when to pull the trigger to create the perfect picture. This way he shoots fun, weird portraits of the people he is hanging out with.
