Alex Prager is an American art photographer and film maker based in Los Angeles. Her photography work is described as being influenced by Cindy Sherman, Philip-Lorca diCorcia and Douglas Sirk, often depicting events about to happen or mid-happening. In 2011 she was commissioned by Kathy Ryan (Director of Photography for the New York Times magazine) to shoot 12 x 1 minute films with some of 2011’s stand-out film actors ‘inspired by “cinematic villainy”‘. Prager won an Emmy for her Touch of Evil short films. More recently in 2019 she exhibited her most autobiographical body of work to date at Lehmann Maupin, which included photographs and a new film, Play the Wind.
