Street Scenes Around the World Exhibit

Presented by Viewpoint Photographic Art Center at Viewpoint Photographic Art Center

Mark Coggins is both an author and photographer. His images have been used to illustrate his own novels as well as the books of other writers, notably Patricia Cornwell’s Red Mist (end papers) and Roland Barthes’s A Lover’s Discourse: Fragments (cover photograph). Most of his photographs are street scenes from cities throughout the world.

Originally, Coggins used photography to document places he wanted to describe in his books. Then he hit upon the idea of including the photos he was taking in the books. Later, he began to alter the plot of his books to have an excuse to include photos he liked that didn’t have a reference to an existing scene. Now he “moves fluidly between writing and photography, doing both pretty much at the same time.”
