Alex Prager is one of the most exciting young photographers in Contemporary Art. Influenced by classic Hollywood cinematic conventions and fashion photography, her works explore melodrama in its most high-keyed aesthetic. Though best known for her photography, her short films are gaining equal recognition for their visionary brilliance. The New York Times recently produced and published an amazing series of 13 short films directed by Prager titled “Touch of Evil”. A video gallery of cinematic villany, these mini-movies each feature one of the best performers from the past year in film and television. Starring Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, George Clooney, Kirsten Dunst, Glenn Close, and others, these featurettes are gorgeous, emotional, funny, creepy and definitely evil.
You can see all 13 films at the New York Times’ website here.
