Overview

Mollino's work consists of 'unique pieces', from furniture to photographs. The elitist architect never produced editions of his photographs and he signed less than 40 , unique copies often retouched. From 1936 to 1973, his photographs, drawings and related historical objects reveal the 'photographic worlds' of Mollino: architecture, skiing and the important corpus of women's portraits, realized in three different periods: the years before the Second World War, the 1950s and the Polaroids of the 1960s/1970s. Since the 1930s Mollino considered photography an opportunity to work on his buildings again, enhancing them with every possible technical and literary artifice, still maintaining the authentic spirit of the buildings and interiors. Women's portratits constitute the main subject of his photographs in the 1930s and 1940s.In his photographic work he did not simply portray his models; he left a message: a woman is the sum of a multiplicity of faces, bodies and expressions.
