carlo mollino – plaroids

this story is as nice as the pictures. when designer carlo mollino died, his executors found in a wall of his studio, few thousands polaroids of mostly naked girls (i only show very decent ones here otherwise mister google or kl won’t be happy, but feel free to check further, petits cochons…). he started to take those pictures in the 60’s and did it until he died. the models were random turin’s women. there is a charming aspect in the fact he did it for himself, not thinking it would ever be displayed. most of the time, pics were staged in his apartment against backdrops and around furnitures he had design. and when checking actual images of the place, you can recognize the tiles or curtains from the polaroids, nice! by pp’
