Fashion photographer Mario Testino takes pictures of what he sees--and what he sees most is models. His colour-drenched fashion work is well known to readers of magazines such as Vogue. He has a particular knack for catching famous posers off-guard--Naomi Campbell looking over her shoulder as her exceedingly low-cut dress is zipped up her back(side); Carla Bruni, backstage at Dior, fully made-up and fully unclothed, shielding herself from Testino's spotlight. Madonna, perhaps his most famous celebrity muse, dancing offstage with her brother. All of these images are vibrant and compelling. But Testino's strength as a photographer is truly revealed when he puts his lens to less glossy images: a man's torso, crisscrossed with sheet marks; a stark black-and-white dual portrait of two young Muscovites; goldfish swarming in a plant-filled tank; a crowded, bronzed South American beach. The hundreds of previously unpublished photographs that make up Any Objections? are reproduced on full pages of heavy, pearly paper, unfettered by captions (the photos are all easily referenced at the back of the book). If you don't think you'll be able to resist the urge to tear out the pages to hang them on the wall, you might consider buying an extra copy. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
'His first book ... is an impressive tome of images culled from his charmed life. It's a travelogue of the people and places he has encountered, a glamorized vision of sex, the street and the absurd. It's Testino redefining his work and his image - pushing the parameters that little bit further.' (Vogue)
'Mario Testino's first book is jam-packed with fascinating behind-the-scenes photographs which provide an insight into the drive and inspiration that went into the creation of the familiar fashion editorials and advertising campaigns.' (Harper's and Queen)See all Product Description

Personally I find Testino rather 'arch' and suspect that he is more skilled than most in creating the impression he wishes the viewer to have. He has no commitment to 'truth' or integrity (in my opinion) and will do whatever it takes to serve his own desires.
