Melanie Pullen

In High Fashion Crime Scenes, Pullen re-creates vintage crime scene images she mined from the files of the L.A.P.D and county coroners's supposed to 'employ the power of fashion to disguise and distract, and to draw our attention away from the otherwise gruesome subjects'.

An interesting idea, and there are some morbidly beautiful compositions...but it's a shame about the styling. I don't care how much Chanel and Bvlgari she threw at it, high fashion it is not. I'd like to see someone work on this idea properly, with the right styling it could have been stunning.
