Compulsion is a thrilling series, by Alex Prager, that is guaranteed to make your heart race. They’re cinematic photos filled with an incredible amount of suspense and drama.
Last year, Huffington Post conducted an interview with Prager where she shared that the inspiration behind this series is Stanley Kubrick’s psychological horror film, The Shining. Look at each photo and you’ll quickly understand why.
Compulsion was on view at Michael Hoppen Contemporary gallery in London. As it states on their site, “Prager's new series investigates the complexity of observation within a society inundated by compulsive spectators, as well as the recurrent discourse in photography – that ‘meaning’ is often derived from a multiplicity of gazes.”
