Alex Prager - Act I, Scene 3 - 2016
Alex Prager creates highly staged, theatrical, and cinematic photographs and films inspired by a wide range of references and influences—street photography, classic Hollywood cinema, and experimental films. This limited edition photograph was shot during the filming of La Grande Sortie, commissioned by the Paris Opera Ballet in 2015. The piece sheds light on the dramatic and intense relationship between audience and performer by highlighting the anxiety felt by the entertainers on stage. Prager has carefully posed her subjects to express this tension, and the perspective of this image, like the film, positions viewer as audience member.
