Product Description

Amazon Review

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 The hundreds of previously unpublished photographs that make up Any Objections?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.

Review

'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)

Format: Hardcover
This is a feast of beautiful and sometimes wild images that draw you to read them again and again. At his best, I think Mario Testino captures the air of the End Of The Centry, as the curvaceous models are gliding in glamour, and you sense it is almost the end of the party. The way Mario Testino unfolds the narrative of images is seducing, because you are given the message that he is less keen to display a series of Vogue-like images than his investigation of the vainty fair. Although it is just recently published, I have been looking forwards to his next one already.

If you wish to know all about Testino, then this is a small part of what you should know. It is certainly not all of it, but you can't afford to ignore it. On the other hand, if you aren't committed, it could take you either way.

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.

By A Customer on 20 Aug. 2001
Format: Hardcover
Testino is most famous for his shoots of superstars and spreads in Vogue but here a new side to his work is shown. Based most around shots taken in Brazil, the book is full of images of ordinary but beautiful people in stunning surroundings mixed up with quite ordinary, reducing photos of celebrities (Naomi on the toilet, Madonna dancing merrily). In each photo, Testino captures a spirit that no other fashion photographer can it seems. Each photo shares a sense of the natural and enticing in this amazing book.
