Photojournalist currently based in Mexico City. Blogger, photo editor, photography trainer.
My name is Alex Coghe. Iím an Italian photojournalist, but I live in Mexico. Street Photography is my calling, and the street was and is my gym, and my therapy.
Now I apply the approach of Street Photography to my profession, and this makes my job more fun everyday. I photograph essentially human beings, but at the same time I photograph my state of mind. Ok, itís a bit of a strange concept, but this is me, and itís the best way to describe my approach. On the street I photograph the reality, often playing with it, trying to offer a second reading.
I am a writer and photographer, and now the two things are related. Observer first, then photographer. I love the streets. I love the people. The contact with people is one of the things I love most about my profession.
My present work includes editorial, documentary, events, corporates, portraits.I enjoy cooking (you should try my lasagna or stuffed chicken). My favourite writer is Charles Bukowski. I would like to start playing tennis again and getting a bicycle. I have a passion for sushi. If I wasnít a photographer, Iíd be a poor writer offering my books to editors.
Well, now I think you know everything there is to know about meÖ
