We demonstrate that two incoherently pumped atoms coupled to an optical resonator produce light with position-dependent field and intensity correlations. The fluorescence spectrum may comprise one, two or three peaks, while the second-order correlation function exhibits bunched or antibunched photon statistics depending on the position of the measurement. These dynamical quantum effects are connected to cavity-induced anticorrelation of the atomic dipoles (Phys. Rev. Lett., 79 (1997) 2650).
