Alex Prager

Alex Prager (b. 1979, United States) is an autodidact photographer and video artist living and working in Los Angeles. Prager’s works touch upon American culture taking their inspiration from such figures as photographer William Eggleston and filmmakers Douglas Sirk and Alfred Hitchcock. Her images tend to appear like film stills, and are characterized by their saturated color and purposely dense details, which reflect her fascination with Hollywood-style melodramatics. Prager’s works are found in the collections of MoMA, Whitney Museum of American Art, Moderna Museet, Stockholm; and SFMOMA.
