CARLO MOLLINO: Photographs 1956-1962

Torino, Museo Casa Mollino, 2006. 336 pp., hundreds of color and b&w photographs. 4to, cloth. Text in English, with Italian translation in separate wraps pamphlet. As new in shrink wrap.

The Italian architect and designer Carlo Mollino held photography dear--it was one of his great passions and favorite means of expression, and an excellent way to enjoy another great passion, women. The photographs gathered here were all set in one of Mollino’s private apartments, which he refurbished especially for this purpose. An advocate of retouching, ...Mollino also painted on his photos or negatives. Most of what appears here has been revised, most bodies sculpted and reshaped, and visibly so now that time has altered the color of the prints, revealing his handiwork. This portfolio, spanning from 1956 to 1962, ends just before Mollino’s Polaroid work of the 60s. It was made using a Leica and color negative film, and has never been published before.
