Mario Testino, one of the world’s most renowned fashion photographers, and one of my personal favorites, releases a new publication; ‘Mario De Janeiro Testino’ a book full of captured images of the beautiful city, Rio de Janeiro.Testino has worked with editorials such as, American Vogue, Allure, British Vogue, GQ Magazine, Vanity Fair, Burberry, D&G, Salvatore Ferragamo, Valentino & Versace to name but a few.
Testino has been fascinated by Rio de Janeiro since his earliest summer vacations.
“When I was 14, on holiday, and going from my house to the beach and seeing everyone walk everywhere in their tiny bathing suits- the girls and boys were so sexy and carefree and wild- I just could not believe it.”
‘Featuring candid shots of exquisite cariocas baring nubile flesh, including supermodel Gisele Bündchen, ‘Mario de Janeiro Testino’ captures the essence of this incomparably seductive city and its sultry citizens. From its breathtaking sunset panoramas, to the throbbing chaos of its world-famous carnival, this isTestino’s love poem to the Brazilian metropolis that captured his teenage heart, and never let go.’ [Words taken from Taschen:]
