Mario Testino’s remains one of the most well known and celebrated photographers in this profession. Often imitated and never equaled, Testino is graced with a natural ability to float effortlessly from studio to backstage to after-party, producing stunning shots in any kind of situation. From royals to mega-celebrities, Testino has shot some of the world’s most inaccessible subjects, always with an ease that betrays the complexity of the task. When Testino gets “in your face” he captures you at your best—and that is what makes him the best. Testino has created images for global brands such as Gucci, Burberry, Versace, Lancome and tons more.
This is one of my favorite fashion books on my shelf. It is an unorthodox collection of various images chosen by Testino from the span of his 30-year career that reflects the diversity of his work, ranging from fashion and advertising shots to sexually-charged images and autobiographical photos. Full of color, life, and humor, this selection is a testament to the brilliance of fabulousness. Something readers will immediately notice about this book is the sheer size of it. Printed like a massive portfolio, this book is 11X14 and exceptionally heavy. In Your Face will be appreciated by anyone for years to come.
