Photographer Crush: Alex Prager

Are you all familiar with Alex Prager's work?  Alex is a photographer and filmmaker based in Los Angeles, and I'm captivated by her images.  Interestingly enough, she's self-taught, learning the art of photography through library books and yard sale finds.  Alex takes her aesthetic cues from film, fashion, and the world of pulp fiction, and creates images that are darkly playful and often feature retro-styled women in dramatic moments:





As playful as the images feel, her works are taken very seriously in the art world and often sell for upwards of $15,000. She's been featured in countless exhibitions, including a MoMa "New Photography" exhibit in the fall of 2010.  "My work is very much about where I'm at psychologically and emotionally in my life," Alex explained to South China Morning Post in 2015.


My favorite collection of her work is entitled "The Big Valley" and was released in 2008:






Alex Prager did a very unique, disembodied heads fashion shoot for Garage Magazine recently.  I can't get over the eeriness of the composition:
