This volume celebrates the work of illustrious portrait and fashion photographer Mario Testino. Uniting dynamic fairy tales and baroque photocomposition, the resulting images sizzle with sex appeal. Blessed with a rare talent for capturing the moment, Testino breaks down all barriers. As you peruse these memorable works you bear witness to the development of a complex artist. His striking photographs mesmerize with artfully staged, yet authentic sensuality. What he once found beautiful, now he finds merely tangential.
Peruvian-born Mario Testino travels extensively shooting for Vanity Fair, American, British, and French Vogue. Other clients include Burberry, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana and Michael Kors. His solo exhibitions have shown in galleries worldwide, and his work is held in the permanent collections of the National Portrait Gallery and V&A Museum in London, and others. He holds the Medalha Tiradentes, the state of Rio de Janeiro's highest award.
