Alex Prager

Alex Prager - "The Big Valley; Virginia", 2008.
The new Cindy star of American photography?

I know when I see good stuff! So far the wonderland and nightmares of this young American photographer and film maker (Los Angeles, 1979) tells me that there is future beyond conventional media and old fashion realism. Her images and her perlaborations around Hollywood lost paradise certainly brings a new flavor to ex-voto iconography by Cindy Sherman, the horrors of Paul Mc Carthy, and even Nan Goldin daily dramas. Alex Prager is none of these great artists, nor is she even close to Diane Arbus, neither to my beloved Larry Clark. There's something else out there. Her work make me think, and this is the marvellous uniqueness of all ingenuous outcomes by creative sensible minds. I'm looking forward to know her future images and narratives!
