Our friends at artnet just launched a new Contemporary Color Photography auction today with some pretty damn solid photographers on the roster. Alex Prager (above), Ryan McGinley, Ed Templeton, Cindy Sherman, Marilyn Minter, and Nan Goldin are just some of the names available. As you know from both our print and web editions of Juxtapoz, we think quite fondly of photography in this digital age, so get bidding.

Alex Prager... busy, busy, busy. What have we seen recently from the standout photographer. Shows around the country, Portlandia shoots, and now a new exhibition at M+B Gallery in Los Angeles for her "Face in the Crowd" series. This body of work was created specifically for Prager’s first major solo museum exhibition in the United States at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. that opened in November 2013.

We are going to keep the point going... Alex Prager is busy! Shows in NYC at Lehmann Maupin, museum shows in Washington DC at Corcoran, and a soon-to-be show at M+B Gallery in Los Angeles have the artist spreading the coast with her cinematic fine art photography. Yesterday, it was announced that Prager shot the promo stills for Portlandia's Season 4, beginning on February 27, 2014.

Alex Prager has been quite busy in recent months, first opening her first US museum survey at Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington DC this past November, and now opening a new solo show, "Face in the Crowd," at Lehmann Maupin in New York City. And she had a six-page feature in the December issue of Juxtapoz. Busy times. Not only will she have a new body of work to show, Prager will be presenting a three-channel video installation as part of the exhibition.

We end the year on a high, high note, with a great December 2013 cover story on artist Todd "REAS" James. We have been scheduling a story with Todd for a bit now, and after the VMAs with the Miley bears, and another year where his exhibitions seems to get more and more stunning, we thought it was time to send contributing editor Joey Garfield out to NYC to catch up with REAS about pirates, girls, Mileys, vandals, and the evolution of his craft.

Alex Prager has long been a favorite with the Juxtapoz staff, a unique, cinematic photographer who has created her own universe of imagery that stands alone as original and exciting in a world of increasingly accessible photography and filters. Much deserved, Prager will have her first museum show in the US open at Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, DC this November 23, 2013, featuring her latest body of work, Face in the Crowd.

This is a bit of older news, but its really good so who cares? Last year, we showed you that photographer/filmmaker Alex Prager shot leading Hollywood stars for the NY Times Magazine, stars who represented the year that was in 2011. That meant Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, Kirsten Dunst, and, of course, Rooney Mara. The photographs were, of course, stunning, but the short conceptual films that Prager shot with each actor/actress are quite brilliant as well....

Few photographers create the cinematic scenery that Alex Prager depicts in her work. Part film noir, part Wizard of Oz circa 2025, Prager has taken an aesthetic and made it one of the most recognizable in the world of contemporary photography. That is hard to do in this day and age. Right now, her Compulsion series is on simultaneous display at three galleries: Michael Hoppen Gallery, London until May 26, at New York’s Yancey Richardson Gallery until May 19, and M+B Gallery, LA until May 12.
