Carlo Mollino: Polaroids is a collection of these photographs, selected from the roughly 1200 surviving Polaroids, never exhibited during his life, which were found following his death in 1973. The images are best described by adjectives closely associated with the presence of money: rich, sumptuous, lavish. They are all eroticized images of women, but the subject is not sex. It’s clear that more so than the human body, Mollino was attracted to the aesthetic abstraction of beauty as a lifestyle. The photographs have been composed, staged and directed with the desire to conquer nature with artifice.
'Carlo Mollino: Polaroids' was published, revealing a number of the more than 1,200 photographs Mollino had taken of women in the semi-nude-a cache that remained a secret until after his death in 1973. This October, the book will be re-released with a new cover that will no doubt delight new and old Mollino fans alike. (Sherri Balefsky Cultured)
