To be completely honest, as soon as we saw the cover of this book we pre-ordered a copy. We later discovered that Carlo Mollino was an architect, furniture designer, writer, race-car driver and erotic photographer. After who knows how many classical shoots, Mollino started using Polaroids. Un Messaggio dalla Camera Oscura is the previously unpublished collection of his Polaroid work. It doesn’t translate to anything close to racy (“A Message from Camera Obscura”), but based on the fact the content of the book is largely statuesquely posed prostitutes it makes up for it elsewhere. Mollino is Terry Richardson before the Internet and this book is his gift to all of us from the grave.
