Starting from September, USA born photographer and director Alex Prager’s Welcome Home awaits curious visitors. Guests are exposed to a world of movie-like fiction and reality through her photography as well as her most recent film, Play the Wind.
Prager loosely refers to a wide range of eras and time periods – 1940s through the 1990s –through the creation of specific characters, settings, scenarios, clothing, hairstyles, and poses. Even though all of her work is staged, Hitchcockian horror and thrill spring from it. Scenes pictured on the photos make them seemingly alive telling the viewer subconsciously what happened before and after the moment captured in a fraction of time.
The exhibition is open at Fotografiska Tallinn from September 11th till November 29th.
