Melanie Pullen: Voyeur
2525 Michigan Ave E1, Santa Monica, CA 90404
Saturday, May 18 at 5:00 PM 8:00 PM
Ends Jul 6, 2024
The gallery will present a showcase of Melanie Pullen’s photographic works ranging from her early High Fashion Crime Scenes to her more recent monographs. Pullen explores the glamorization and desensitization of violence on the human psyche through themes of voyeurism, early forensic photography, and war photojournalism. She self-proclaims their appropriation as exploitative as the images boldly confront societal morés through tongue-and-cheek tableaux.
