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.

Moving on, Tim Burton is set to release his new film, Dark Shadows, which is based on the slightly campy 1966-1971 supernatural soap opera of the same name. This could go either way, but you know the filmmaking and sets will be great as always.
