A master of modern fashion and portrait photography
The mere mention of Mario Testino’s name evokes a rush of
adrenalin in anyone that cares, even a bit, about the worlds of fashion
and celebrity. So omnipresent is he at major magazine shoots and A-list
events—an insider if ever there was one—that he has become a celebrity
himself. The launch of Testino’s latest book, to celebrate his inaugural
exhibition in China, brings together an exciting selection of his best
studio work with glamorous examples of his candid shots. A beaming
Gwyneth Paltrow clutching her freshly-won Oscar, a fur-cloaked Jennifer
Lopez atop a commode, and the unforgettable portraits of royalty
including Diana, Princess of Wales, and her sons are just a few of the
hundreds of iconic pictures that are brought together, for the first
time, inside the book. Testino’s best recent advertising and fashion
work rounds out the selection, making this a must-have collector’s item
for any art or fashion lover’s library.
Contributing authors: Graydon Carter, Karl Lagerfeld, Jennifer Allen, and Patrick Kinmonth.
