Alex Prager Touches Evil
Director Alex Prager is beginning to look like one of the most transcendent directive photographers of the last century. Critics attempt to categorize her work by era – 20′s, 30′s, 40′s, 50′s, 60′s, 70′s, 80′s – but no one can agree! Alex Prager’s main medium is short films and photography – she provides glimpses. Although most of her work stands in still-frame or lasts for only about a minute, she is able to capture Hitchcockian suspense and allure with ease.
Prager’s recent work includes a captivating homage to timeless movie villains. Recruiting the acting finesse of Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, Viola Davis, Mia Wasikowski, Gary Oldman, Kirsten Dunst and more; Prager created the cinematic spread for the New York Times Magazine and it does not disappoint.
