Alex Prager - Silver Lake Drive
The definitive monograph on Alex Prager, one of the truly original image makers of our time. Alex Prager is a photographer and filmmaker whose elaborate sets and complex staging draw on a rich cultural heritage of cinematic style, informed by street photography, to produce work that is unerringly memorable. At once temporal and timeless, bright but shadowed, Prager's images exist within a hyperreal world, deeply rooted in the eerie undertones of Los Angeles, where the line between reality and fiction is blurred. Prager's critically acclaimed work is introduced here, spanning a decade of photographic work and five films.
