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.

Synopsis:

The photographer who can do it all
If photography had a royal family, Mario Testino would be its reigning prince. So omnipresent is he at major magazine shoots and A-list events—an insider if ever there was one—that the mere mention of his name evokes a rush of adrenalin in anyone that cares, even a bit, about the worlds of fashion and celebrity. He is, too a terrific portraitist (frequently of real Royals), and what this book brings together is a smashing selection of his best studio work with gorgeous examples of his candid shots. Elizabeth Hurley perched on a piano wrapping her legs around Elton John, anyone? A beaming Gwyneth Paltrow clutching her freshly-won Oscar? Diana, Princess of Wales, and her handsome sons? Yes, please. A selection of Testino’s best recent advertising and fashion works rounds out this luscious and stupendously heterogeneous array, begging the question: does Mario Testino ever sleep?

Contributing authors: Graydon Carter, Jennifer Allen, and Patrick Kinmonth.

Published on the occasion of the 2012 exhibition of the same name at the Today Art Museum in Beijing, China.
