Silver Lake Drive showcases Prager's boldest creations to date: from the early Polyester series, through her film collaborations with actor Bryce Dallas Howard, to the tour-de-force Face in the Crowd—shot on a Hollywood sound stage with more than 150 performers—and her 2016 commission for the Paris Opera, La Grande Sortie. This book is an essential collectable for Prager's fans and an illuminating introduction to her work for new audiences. Being one of the truly original image makers of our time, Prager delicately stages compositions that are familiar yet strange, utterly compelling, unerringly memorable and grand in every sense.
