In what may be a normal day-to-day occurrence, Alex Prager sees stories to be told. Her newest exhibit at M+B Gallery, “Face in the Crowd” explores the notion that as crowds and masses may seemingly be just seas of people, there are actually millions of individual stories and experiences “silently colliding.” Photographing hundreds of actors in specific settings in both stills and a film starring Elizabeth Banks, Prager’s photo exhibit also touches upon narratives of private and public revelation, repulsion, fear, personal safety and the need for basic human interaction. The exhibit opened last Saturday, January 25, and will be on display at the until March 8.
