Photography: Alexander Coggin's friends are better looking than yours

Posted by Maisie Skidmore,

Berlin-based photographer Alexander Coggin’s website is a veritable feast of product photography, but alongside all his highly slick professional work is a trove of fun, weird portraits of some of his devastatingly attractive friends. A super pretty lady with a baby hanging out in a pool, a tired-looking tea-drinker clutching a dog and a blonde hunk hanging out of a window, the collection is a cool testament to what these cool photographer types get up to for fun. The collections of hairstyles on display is tremendous, too – never had I ever been so game to embrace my natural frizz and don a pair of round sunglasses as I am now that this shaggy-maned, fogged-up person showed me what I’ve been missing.
