“high fashion crimes scenes” é uma série de melanie pullen de tirar o fôlego. a fotógrafa norte-americana cria ou recria cenas de crime em que mulheres elegantes, vestidas de prada, miu miu ou qualquer outra grande marca, são mortas de forma um tanto brutal ou, no mínimo, misteriosa

feitas em locações diversas, que vão de um parque de diversões a um rio em los angeles, as fotos são sombrias e impactantes. no começo, melanie ia à multimarcas para conseguir as roupas. hoje, recebe pilhas de opções de grifes como dolce & gabbana

a idéia para a série surgiu quando ela viu um homem morto em um barril. os sapatos saltaram aos olhos naquela cena. “os sapatos são uma distração comparados ao evento principal. cada uma dessas fotos representa o fim de uma longa e detalhada história, a história da vida de alguém. mas o crime se tornou uma coisa tão explorada que não nos pega do jeito que deveria”, disse ao new york times

Melanie Pullen’s long-awaited first monograph, High Fashion Crime Scenes, presents her breathtakingly beautiful works based on vintage crime scene images, first-hand accounts, and documents Pullen mined from the files of the lapd. In 2002, drawn to the rich details and compelling stories preserved in the criminal records, Melanie Pullen began restaging the events, outfitting the “victims” (her selected models) in current haute couture, and photographing them in her staged settings. To create this work, Pullen at times enlisted the help of up to sixty people per shoot: set builders, makeup artists, models, stylists and stunt crews, among others. Her models have included the actresses Rachel Miner and Juliet Lewis. The collection of more than one hundred images has received considerable critical acclaim in the national and international press. Over the past three years, the twenty-nine year old artist has occasionally worked as a commercial fashion photographer. She has shot layouts for the likes of Flaunt and Rolling Stone. High Fashion Crime Scenes is presented in an oversized format, richly printed and machine varnished on matt art paper. Texts by Luke Crisell, Robert Enright and Colin Westerbeck.
