Born and raised in Los Angeles, Alex Prager’s inherent connection to Hollywood and her love of cinema, is as obvious as it is fascinating. Describing the city’s Wild West quality of no rules as one of her greatest inspirations, Prager started with guerilla style photography and film and then moved into more elaborately staged tableaux’s inspired by her personal life and the state of society.
In Welcome Home at Fotografiska, Prager seeks out the darker side of human nature, or reality, sitting just beneath layers of artifice that distract us from what’s important, captured with exceptional technical skill, precision, and an eye for detail.

"I was moved by pictures that had a piece of the artists' life force trapped inside. I felt that was what drew me to William Eggleston’s work in the first place, otherwise they would essentially just be snapshots. When I decided to do photography professionally I was committed to figuring out how to put a piece of myself in the work I was making. I love to put my references directly in my work, and are always taking inspiration from the questions I have about my life and the state of society. The darker side of human nature, or reality, sitting just beneath layers of artifice that distract us from what’s important", says Alex Prager.
