Alex Prager, a photographer living and working in Los Angeles, California, has a knack for the dramatic. It helps that his environment not only condones these tendencies, but encourages it. Having done editorials for the New York Times, campaigns for Target and films for Mercedes Benz, Alex Prager is well-versed in the world of photography and art direction. Adding these all up, and his latest series, 'Compulsion,' is a natural next step.
In Alex Prager's Compulsion series, surreal turn-for-the-worst moments are captured where women find themselves precariously suspended in the air, houses have caught fire and, quite impossibly, cars have sunk into shallow puddles. Each image can be likened to a still from a movie. Alex Prager knows how to engage people on many levels.
