OH OK FUN A New Exhibition Exploring Consumerism, Excess and Fun

American photographer Alexander Coggin is always in search of character when he wields his camera – and flash, crucially – which he does on a daily basis. But that’s not to say his practice and the consequent vibrant photographs can be boiled down to a single technique or theme. 

Coggin’s first solo exhibition, Oh OK Fun and the featured photographs feel every bit as candid and playful as we’ve come to expect from the image-maker – perhaps you recognise his name as the man behind the clavicle studies of Frieze Art Fair and Dover Street Market attendees. Coggin’s background is in theatre and, over the course of developing his photography practice, he’s continued to seek out the performative and theatrical from behind the camera.
