Drew Pettifer – I Melt With You


I Melt With You is the fourth instalment in Drew Pettifer’s ongoing publishing project of monographic works. In this iteration, Melbourne curator Pippa Milne has selected the photographs and written an accompanying essay, which teases out the status of these images. She notes:

‘.. These are not documentary photographs. They do not show what happens to be going on anyway. They are not incidental, rather the situation is negotiated and discussed — if not orchestrated and directed — then consciously considered by Pettifer and his sitters, the vast majority of whom are friends, or friends of friends.’ – Pippa Milne from In Other Rooms, Other Wonders.
