The photographer – and more recently director – Alex Prager was born in Los Angeles in 1979. He discovered his passion almost by accident, visiting an exhibition of William Eggleston that gives the impetus to embark on a path of self-taught in photography. He thus began to take his photos everywhere and to attack them in beauty salons as the walls of the bars: and now, after years of various exhibitions, publicity – he shot a short film for Mercedes Benz – publications and was able to explain even to the MOMA New York.
The care taken to rebuild the looks and details of time, expressed in a face with makeup, or even in retro red eyes filled with tears, he knows so awaken the viewer’s fantasy fiction, which is found to interact with the works, rebuilding always a first and an after. For those who want to try it live, from April 5 to May 1 some of his shots are exposed to the PH-Neutral Photography Fine Art of Forte dei Marmi.
