9781892041609: Carlo Mollino: Polaroids

Carlo Mollino (1905–1973) was one of the most inspired mid-20th-century architects and designers. In a career that spanned more than four decades, Mollino designed buildings, homes, cars, aircraft, women’s fashion, and theater sets. He was a renaissance man who sought to articulate movement and sensuality in his designs. Even more compelling are the magically surreal Polaroid images Mollino made in his Turin studio during the last 14 years of his life, seen here in the first-ever collection of Mollino’s carefully honed erotic photographs of women. From 1,500 works, the Ferraris have culled over 250 representative images in which Molino posed his models in evocative clothing, staged the backdrops, and finally, altered the photos with a microscopic paintbrush to attain his ideal view of the female form. Only a few of Mollino’s Polaroids have ever been viewed by the public.

About the Author:

Carlo Mollino is born in Turin in 1905. He studies architecture and in 1953 he becomes professor of architecture composition at the Turin University. So much important as architecture are the furnishing, the furniture as unique pieces, publications and critical books. He also has several interests such as ski, mechanics, racing cars, aereal acrobatics and photography. In 1945 E. Scopinich publishes the monographic book Ritratti ambientali. He builds between 1936-1960 some 'houses' where to set his pictures, which from an interest for surrealism and symbolism in black and white photos arrive to a specific women portrait, at first in colour them polaroid.Carlo Mollino died in 1973, while still working.

From The New Yorker:

One of the most dashing figures of mid-century Italy, Mollino was renowned both for his sleek, ultramodern furniture design and architecture and for his refined hedonism; he was a drug addict who raced cars and flew his own plane. Sometime around 1960, Mollino began to seek out women, mostly prostitutes, in his native Turin, bringing them to his villa for late-night modeling sessions, where they posed for Polaroid photographs, against backgrounds that he designed. The pictures remained a secret between Mollino and his subjects until after his death, in 1973, when some two thousand were found. This lavish selection of several hundred Polaroids preserves the essential mystery of a project both decadent and hermetic. Though clearly the product of a deep obsession, the photographs are deliberately impersonal, each baroque detail an invitation for the viewer to imagine Mollino's encounters with the women.
