Alex Prager

American artist Alex Prager (1979 Los Angeles) has her second solo exhibition at FOAM  photography Museum in Amsterdam. 
Prager’s work is rooted in the photographic tradition of William Eggleston, Diane Arbus and Cindy Sherman, each of whom mastered the art of freezing the indeterminable everyday moment. Prager’s oeuvre consists of heavily staged, large format images using rich colours. Her photographs can be seen as ‘single frame narratives’ that capture enigmatic stories within the edges of the frame. Both her photographs and films are characterised by the absence of a linear narrative; each of the works recounts a bizarre, perpetual unreality.

It seems you look at stills of a movie.
