This is a showcase of the amazing photographs taken by Alex & Cocco, a collection of photographs that represent the everyday confinements, re-proposing the ordinary, the displaced and the overlooked.
“Distil Ennui” Definition: To extract the essence and beauty of life to appease world weariness.
With many of the images, subjects appear floating in a black space that neither interferes nor disrupts the subject matter. In fact the collaboration within this void offers a serene and dreamlike sensation with images broken into positive and negative spaces. Images that do suggest cultural and social issues do so in a way that is not forceful or aggressive, but more open to you, the viewers own interpretation.
“Life can be described as being like a constant stream of images, they pass us by like towns on a highway. But sometimes a moment stuns us as it happens and we know this instant is more than just a fleeting image, we know that this moment every part of it will live on forever.
That is the feeling they have when shooting photographs.

Alex & Cocco are well know for their panoramic shots. They shoot in a very unusual way with some amazing gear with very long exposures with native file sizes reaching up to 3gb in size – the close-up detail is incredible as their clients like to print them in scales that are measured in meters. Crazy stuff.
