Artist Alex Prager’s large-scale Hitchcockian photographs and a new short film will be on display in a solo exhibit at Paris’ Galerie des Galeries.
The 10-minute short “La Grande Sortie” is about a ballerina experiencing the harrowing experience of performance anxiety.
Writes The Creators Project, “Combined with lighting that is so meticulously flawless, it becomes apparent that Prager’s images aren’t an indicator of an incredible street photography talent. Rather, the artist is in control of every aspect of the image, an orchestrated fabrication just like the classic pictures of Hollywood. And just like the iconic films of the Golden Age, Prager’s dramatization of reality ends up probing ideas of the human condition that go beyond what is possible in documentary works.”
