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.

Letterheads


Letterheady is an online homage to offline correspondence; specifically letters. They don't care about the letter's content. Just its design. I loved Johnny Cash's letterhead :

STROLLS THROUGH TIME & SPACE WITH MICHAEL JOHANNSON


Strövtåg i tid och rum, 2009
(Strolls through time and space)

Michael Johannson made these cubes and sculptures; so many good ones that it was hard to choose. Take a look at his website.


Packa Pappas Kappsäck, 2006
(Pack Daddy's Suitcases)
The title comes from an old Swedish rhyme and refers to the difficulty of repeating the same thing several times. This time, the repetition lies in differently sized suitcases that fit perfectly inside one another, and thus lose their original purpose.

STUDIO ILSE VS WAESTBERG


Lamp from Studio Ilse

I already loved their table lamp, but this is even better. It kind of reminds me to the lamp "Potence" of Jean Prouvé, just much more family- and less office-like.
See more of Studio Ilses Light on their website or on Waestberg.

AWAY WE GO …





I'm a sucker for large travel bags … my favourite is the classic rimova aluminium-trolley, but there are some leather and cotton bags that would do the job as well … but I don't know which brand they are.
