Precious Metals

Add to favourites

Precious Metals is a collection of new and recent photographs by 25-year old, Sydney-based artist, Jack Mannix. Jack – after leaving home at age 13 – had his first paid job freelancing for Rolling Stone at 14, and has since had his images widely published in nation and international publications.

He has a distinctive style, shooting only on film and without the use of extra light sources, creating an intimacy and energy that remains present in his photographs. Exploring themes of isolation, addiction, sex and death; his gritty documentary-style images cross the boundaries of both lo-fi and high-fashion photography. Documenting his personal life as well a larger grand narrative, his images expose the preoccupations of both the artist and his subjects. Playing with constructions of identity and self, as well as notions of power and desire, Mannix captures the infinite spectrum of strength, beauty, brutality and fragility in contemporary life.
