The Imaginary World of Alex Prager

In the MoMa in New York there is currently an exhibition named New Photography 2010. The Los Angelos' photographer Alex Prager (1979) is one of the artists on show. She creates staged pictures of her friends in all kinds of settings. Settings that raise questions, but do not provide answers. Her fascinating work reminds me of work by Cindy Sherman, Edward Hopper, Christian Brandl and many others.
