'Precious Metals' - Photography by Jack Mannix (Book)

from DERO Arcade

Precious Metals is a square-shaped artist monograph, collaboratively compiled by both Jack Mannix & Sophie Kitson. This comprehensive 96pp full-colour soft-cover photography book houses a curated selection of over 100 striking portraits and still life images captured by Mannix since 2005. It was developed originally for an exhibition of the same name at the Centre for Contemporary Photography, Melbourne 2014, although its real purpose is to survey the widest selection of Mannix's photography to date.

The Preface is written by curator Sophie Kitson; with a critical writing piece by none other than the legendary Jack Sargeant. A thoughtful, more involved discussion of Mannix's work is written by Angela Garrick; and a conversational introduction to Precious Metals is written by the artist themself, Jack Mannix.

Mannix's photography is intimate and raw - shunning digital photography in favour of analogue, film based photography, and working with natural light/settings, and sometimes flash, documenting life as it happens - none of these images are staged, simply captured, documented for posterity. The work is often likened to the early work of Nan Goldin, Larry Clark, Rennie Ellis - the photographs serve as a visual document of a time - youth, excess, sex, desperation, beauty, pain, bliss - all captured in moments - portraits, still lives & abstract images come together to form a loose narrative, one that almost anyone can relate to at some point in their lives..
