Alex Prager‘s photography is equal parts Hitchcock and Crewdson, with some hints of Sherman thrown in. Her images contain whole worlds, full backstories of all the characters, a sense of action before and after the millisecond captured on the film. Silver Lake Drive is a retrospective, of sorts, with selected images and film stills from projects completed […]
I became aware of Juno Calypso‘s work several years ago, back during my early, digital days even. A few of her pictures from the Joyce and The Honeymoon series are in my inspiration file for their color and suggestion of (creepy, menacing) narrative, but my interest in her work preceded my photobook obsession and I […]
