The fact that Alex Prager's upcoming exhibition Compulsion is opening at not one, but three galleries in three cities this April is a bit of a signifier of her popularity. M+B in Los Angeles, Yancey Richardson in New York and Michael Hoppen in London will all be celebrating the equal part glamourous and talented photographer, who was recently awarded the prestigious 2012 Foam Paul Huf Award, this spring, before she goes on to present a solo exhibition at Amsterdam's Foam Museum in August. For those who can't wait until April, Prager's work is currently on view at NRW-Forum Düsseldorf in the institution's State of the Art Photography show.
