Alex Prager

Heeeeeeyyyyy there folks.

So, if you've been to San Francisco MoMA (note the lower case "o", I'm so hip it's ridiculous) within the last year or so, you will have seen Ms. Prager's works emblazoned on the white partitions, taking your breath away. In case you haven't, here's a bit of a teaser for you. Oh, and if you live within 500 miles of San Francisco, get your butt over there and check this ish out! I don't care how long it takes you! Or that gas is like 9million dollars a gallon! It's worth it! Truuuuussssst me.

So, Alex Prager is a photographer heavily influenced by cinematography and awesomeness. In addition to her amazing photo works, she has a film short on display at the MoMA called "Despair". It's mesmerizing. Just a few minutes long, yet I was stuck there watching it for like, an hour. Ok maybe ten minutes. Ok MAYBE I only watched it all the through once. Whatever. Details, schmetails.

Dadadadddaaadummm! Chaaarrrrgeeee!!!! into this sweetness:

 Despair, Film Still #1, 2010

 Julie, 2007
 Susie and Friends, 2008

 Irene, 2010

Desiree, 2008

So, totally awesome, RIGHT?!?!?!

While we're on the subject of art, I've spent the morning mournfully looking AGAIN at the possibility of getting a graduate degree in something art related.  Can I just moan for a bit about how freaking expensive getting an MFA is?

'K thanks.
