Pierre Molinier is discussed and celebrated for his pioneering photographic explorations of corporeality, gender and sexual hedonism. Yet his work has remained inaccessible to most of those people aware of his name and importance. André Breton staged the only proper solo show enjoyed by Molinier in his fifty year career; upon his death in 1976 his photographs were familiar only to a small circle of erotic art connoisseurs. Many of his pictures have never been exhibited and only 160 prints have been published. This groundbreaking monograph, garnered from the artist's archives, unwraps Molinier's oeuvre and fully reveals his artistic obsessions with sexual pleasure, transvestitism and public notoriety, with over 800 pictures, mostly unpublished, plus documents, manuscripts and letters, a chronology and critical biography, and a text by Jean-Luc Mercié.
