Guido Mocafico: Serpens

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 20, 2012
I'm going to be straight up here and go first person: I don't like snakes. They freak me out. I totally understand how beautiful they are in their prehistoric skin, and they way they move is elegant and interesting (if you like death staring you in the face and slithering quicker than you can run). Having said that... these photos have led me to a new respect for the artistic nature of a snakes skin. That might be it, though.

Alex Prager "Compulsion" in Los Angeles, NYC, and London

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 20, 2012
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.

Its best we allow Kander to explain the project in his own words (below is merely an excerpt from a longer statement) and then let the photos tell the rest of the story through their beautifully minimal compositions and seductively subdued hues.
