Alex Prager

The first thing that came to mind when I saw Alex Prager’s photography, was Hitchcock. As far as I’m concerned if you make anything that reminds anyone of Alfred Hitchcock, you’re doing something right. This is some faaantastic work.

    this is really really cool

  • Nice, I like these a lot.

  • these are sick… I’m infatuated with the 60’s & 70’s. Your right Jeff; these look like stills from some of Hitchcock’s work.

  • Jenny

    also reminds me of Cindy Sherman’s Untitled Film Stills, no?

  • similar yea

    The photo with the plane in the background looks familiar. I think The Stranger used it on one of their covers, but I can’t be positive.

  • Jonny

    These are an exact copy of Cindy Sherman’s work, who did them 25 years ago. These are not interesting or original in any way. This makes me so mad to see.
