Alex Prager: Week-End
Photographer Alex Prager completes her trilogy of intriguingly unnerving photographs—awkwardly posing her doll-like subjects in vintage-inspired panoramas—with her upcoming exhibition "Week-End" at NYC's Yancey Richardson Gallery.
The source of a lot of buzz at the recent 2009 Pulse Fair in Miami, Prager's highly-saturated heroines and oft-startling scenes speak to her fondness for David Lynch and Hitchcock films, as well as her belief that deep down "all women are actresses." The carefully-executed compositions also draw both on Cindy Sherman's early film stills series and on the fellow photographer's later use of color.
Complimenting her previous two exhibitions "Polyester" and "Big Valley," the L.A. native builds on her creepy cinematic images with "Week-End," the final comment on her home city's "strange picture of perfection." (Click above image for detail.)
