Architect Carlo Mollino’s Secret Stash Of NSFW Erotic Polaroids

After Italian architect and designer Carlo Mollino died in 1973, a large secret stash of erotic Polaroids were uncovered among his personal effects.

In total some 1200 images of women posed wearing specially chosen clothes against artfully created backgrounds. No one was quite sure why Mollino had taken these pictures–a midlife crisis? sexual fantasies? – or why he had kept them a secret. But the quality of the imagery and the deliberate composition suggested Mollino had a specific aesthetic intent when making these pictures.

“Everything is permissible as long as it is fantastic,” Mollino once said–a line that almost describes the fantasy of his life.
