Artist Bio

Alex Prager

Alex Prager was born in 1979 in Los Angeles, California, where she continues to live and work. A self-taught artist, she was inspired to take up photography after seeing the color images of William Eggleston, who is widely regarded as the father of contemporary color photography. Her work has been exhibited internationally, most prominently in Alex Prager: Face in the Crowd at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. (2013), Alex Prager: Compulsion (2012) at FOAM in Amsterdam, and New Photography 2010 at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. Prager has been recognized with the FOAM Paul Huf Award (2012), among other honors. Her editorial work has been featured in Vogue and W, and her film series “Touch of Evil,” commissioned by The New York Times Magazine, won a 2012 Emmy Award. Prager’s work is represented in the collections of major museums including New York’s Museum of Modern Art and Whitney Museum of American Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Sweden.
