Melanie Pullen's show for her series, High Fashion Crime Scenes, is still talked about as a seminal event in the Los Angeles art scene. Since then, it has been shown at museums and galleries across the world.
This book is a perfect collection of the highlights of the series. The intricate, beautiful sets combined with a macabre humor of the "dead" haute couture models are a harsh indictment of the way violence is portrayed in our culture. On one level gorgeous scenery and on another violence and death, the book makes a perfect coffee table book: pretty decoration on the surface with deep, evocative emotion underneath.
