Alex Prager: Silver Lake Drive

"I am trying to make the world a little more interesting to me and to inspire other people, to connect." This is how photographer and filmmaker Alex Prager describes the motivation behind her work in the Silver Lake Drive collection. This coffee-table gem includes more than 100 of her "Kodachrome, technicolor" images, including Face in the Crowd, work from her films and La Grande Sortie, her Paris Opera commission. Appropriately compared with the work of Alfred Hitchcock and Edward Hopper, Prager's photographs offer thought-provoking imagery in cinematic compositions, employing grand costumes for intriguing characters. The large, glossy pages invite viewers into the scenes while the essays and interviews spread throughout the book delve deeply into the ideas and art. Alex Prager: Silver Lake Drive is a treasure for any photography aficionado. --Jen Forbus, freelancer
