continuing to look at West Coast photographers….
Alex Prager’s imagery can only be a product of growing up in Los Angeles and being surrounded by a culture of cinematic references and plastic surgery. Armed with a trunk load of wigs, false eyelashes, and Tippi Hedren inspired ensembles, Alex has created two bodies of work that are the love children of Alfred Hitchcock and Tina Louise in The Stepford Wives. Polyester, and her new series, The Big Valley, showcase young beautiful women in heightened movie still environments. Influenced by a William Eggleston exhibition at the Getty Museum, Alex picked up a camera, taught herself how to shoot, and the rest is history. The Big Valley is currently on exhibition at The Yancey Richardson Gallery in New York City.
