Can crime, dressed as fashion, be an art form? It seems so. American photographer Melanie Pullen created the High Fashion Crime series which illustrates real criminals in Los Angeles between 1912 and 1950. She tells the cruel stories to society from her own point of view, working with famous models, actresses and brands such as Prada, Chanel and Gucci. She recovers documentary archives and gives the high fashion taste to crimes that most people tend to be insensitive to.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
