WILLIAM EGGLESTONS LEGACY : ALEX PRAGER


M+B, my favourite gallery in L.A opens on March 30th an exhibition with the work of Alex Prager, a 29 year-old photographer that has inspired me lot in sense of coulours.

Alex Prager was born in Los Angeles in 1979. She was raised by her grandmother in a small apartment in the suburb of Los Feliz. Her nomadic upbringing saw her splitting her time between Florida, California, and Switzerland without truly settling down long enough for a formal education.

Prager's interest in art began in her adolescence, but it was in her early twenties that she began to focus on photography after being inspired by the work of William Eggleston.

In keeping with her independent spirit, she eschewed art school and began taking photographs on her own, teaching herself equipment and lighting through trial and error. Prager has since contributed to a number of publications including Details, i-D, Elle Japan, Tank, MOJO, and Complex. All the while, continuing to exhibit her work in various galleries worldwide.
