The portfolio of photographer Tim Melideo's fashion portraiture exhibits scantily clad blondes sprawled out on dingy laundromat machines and abandoned, graffiti-ed, concrete platforms. His "Remembering the Forgotten" landscape series of boarded-up motels, rusty refrigerators, and dry swimming pools and gas pumps in California's arid deserts makes post-apocalyptic dirt look sexy.
His skateboard photography makes me attracted to meals-on-wheels boys, and I want to hang his series of seedy bathroom photographs above my Diptyque candles and girly bath towels. In other words, his stark, grungy photographs are so chillingly beautiful that I almost find them glamorous. He's definitely someone to keep your eye on, or even hire to shoot your rocker boyfriend's band. I don't know about you but I'd love to see him shoot interiors, and, god forbid, some place that's seen a broom and dust pan in the last 50 years.
