Photographer Alex Prager debuts 'Week-End,' a photo exhibit which evokes a modern-day duality that rests on women: the pressure of being beautiful on the outside amidst a sense of uneasiness and loneliness on the inside.

Her primary inspiration is life in L.A. Shot in the neighborhood she grew up in and starring her L.A. friends, Prager disguises her subjects with enough hair and makeup that they resemble lifeless mannequins, representing the idea of a superficial, unfulfilled life in glitzy L.A.

Her photographs are on display at the Yancey Richardson Gallery in NY and at the M + B Gallery in Los Angeles. The exhibit will run in New York and L.A. until February 20th.
