LA Art Book Fair Part. 2

This is a sampling of Kristen Schiele’s work from her book Autop Rize. I was drawn to it immediately. She’s a cool printer from Brooklyn.
The more I look at it then more I like it. I hope you do too.

The Polaroids of Carlo Mollino

Posted in Favorite Books with tags , , on February 2, 2015 by tminx

This book is wonderful, eerie and sad at the same time. Carlo was a successful architect and designer. From 1960-73 he started bringingwomen, friends and women of the night back to his Villa in Turin where he meticulously dressed and staged them for these polaroid photo sessions. Thousands have been uncovered and have been put together in this book. Here are some of the more tame images.carlomollinocarlomollino2carlomollinoccarlomollinodcarlomollinofcarlo Mollinoa

White Elephant Gift!

I got this book at an X-mas party last Saturday and I love it. I had never heard of “The Lonely Doll” before, apparently it was a popular childhood book. There are some creepy undertones to it. I can’t put my finger on how, but I feel like the photographer might have been into some dark shit.

I’m really feeling all the gloss. He was the mastermind behind all the Charles Jourdan campaigns throughout the 70’s and very early 80’s.

If I could split my self in two I’d time travel back to the 70’s while my twin stays here to keep posting on the blog.
