Carlo Mollino by Francesco Zanot
Architect, designer, writer, skier, racing driver and stunt pilot, Carlo Mollino placed photography in a wholly privileged role in the pantheon of his languages and interests. Carlo Mollino used photography at a means of expression, producing works that were both classical and experimental, and as a fundamental instrument for the documentation of his work and his daily life. From a theoretical point of view, he provided an important impulse to the historic and aesthetic study of this means, contributing to its transition into the system of art. With over 450 illustrations, this book fully investigates the relationship between Mollino and photography, from his first architectural shots to the Polaroids of his later years, placing him within the history of the discipline. Text in English and Italian.
