Description

Magician with a camera: 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. Available in pink, green or purple. Orders placed online will be fulfilled with one of these colors."
