Alex Prager has garnered acclaim for her intricately staged, highly complex imagery that makes use of cinematic convention as a tool to challenge narrative tropes and offer deeper psychological associations to seemingly ordinary themes. Her images often allude to their own artifice by exaggerating the on-screen manipulations of the film industry, such as makeup or lighting effects, in an attempt to reveal the often-hidden reality of the human condition on film. She deliberately casts and stages all of her works, merging past and contemporary sources to create a sense of uncanny ambiguity. Miracle Mile marks a turning point in her career as it is her first exploration into the "crowd" as a compositional conceit, which has preoccupied much of her more recent work.
