Alex Prager harnesses solar energy. Face her smile and feel it — sunshine at point blank range. Your eyes will continue working though, and for the better too, as it happens with her photography. That luminosity is inescapable. You’re not avoiding it anyway. You’re called to the siren song, despite the silence, for even the nocturnal pieces of Week-end kindle.
+KN | Kitsune Noir » Alex Prager
Last week my buddy Eric gave me a heads up about this photographer Alex Prager, so I checked out her site, and was totally stunned. ALex works in Los Angeles, shooting photos that are extremely retro in their styling, but modern in their execution. Imagine the set of The Birds, or an episode of The Wonder Years, but shot in this weird, almost Stepford Wives kind of way. It’s kind of like she crafted a bunch of personas from different pieces of characters in films and then photographed it. The colors are bright, but somewhat desaturated and definitely surreal.
