Foto Fix: Alex Prager’s photography is a treat, she melds so much into her own distinctive voice. They really express the feel of Los Angeles: cars, freeways, concrete and the film industry- movie stars and models, poseurs a plenty. Vain, impersonal yet desperate with vacant emotion. At the same time they evoke Cindy Sherman’s work, portraiture and scenes of an exclusively female culture. Mix that with a 1960’s feel, tinted vintage Vogue and retro travel ads – you get the stuff good photography should be.
Check out her excellent portfolio, films and current show, Compulsion.
