Alex Prager Photography

 

 

 

 

I’ve fallen in love with the photography of Alex Prager. Self-taught through trial and error and operating as a one-woman show, styling and designing the sets, her photography is compelling and massively impressive. Influenced (clearly) by film (David Lynch and Alfred Hitchcock in particular) her images tell of mysterious tales and of beautiful and disturbed females. I was really fighting the urge to put all her images on here. She titles her photographs after names of girls, inviting us to get to know these beautiful creatures. Alex Prager has recently made a short film. You can view Despair here.

The Museum of Discovery

The highlight of Exhibition #3 at the Museum of Everything is Ted Willcox’s tapestries. This ex-serviceman learnt how to sew in hospital while recovering from injuries. He created embroideries of pin-up girls and his unique version of Alice in Wonderland. I highly recommend checking Exhibition #3 out. Other highlights were Walter Potter’s dioramas (love this) and Arthur Windley’s miniature funfair (which he turned on every morning in his garage).

I urge everyone to have an afternoon of discovery. The exhibition is on until Dec 24th.
