This series of photographs taken between January 2009 and March 2010, features the mannequin I call Molino. Molino is named after a small hotel in Mexico that had jungle-like grounds with quaint little cabins, lazy iguanas, screeching parrots, and meandering walkways which lead to the sea. A few years ago the hotel was bulldozed to make way for an imposing high-rise condo complex. During construction, foot traffic was diverted past a small dress shop where I discovered the mannequin I named Molino. Here I would pause at the window and study the downcast face of the mannequin and her latest outfit. In the photograph of Molino wearing a black and white turban-style head covering, black dress and white shawl, the new high-rise complex is reflected in the window.
