Alex Prager, one of our favorite fine art photographers who shot Robert Williams's portraits for our special issue in November 2009, just completed a series of short videos and portraits for the New York Times Magazine's annual Hollywood issue. Prager shot films and portraits of George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Kirsten Dunst, Gary Oldman, Ryan Gosling, Viola Davis, Glenn Close, and other 2011 award season hopefuls.
