Stern, 2000 - 94 Seiten
One of fashion's most sought-after photographers, Mario Testino has launched the careers of several of the current crop of supermodels, including Kate Moss and Stella Tallent. This vivid collection from the Stern archives includes Testino's portraits of celebrities, parties, fashion spreads and shots of the eccentric world behind the catwalk.
Eternally youthful in both outlook and his style, Testino is a member of a new generation of fashion photographers who are attracted to experimentation, to provocative subject matter and eroticism. Yet for all the vibrant coloring of his set-ups, and his tendency toward the rough-and-tumble, his photographs possess the cool and highly polished style of an expert cameraman. His passion for fine art and portraiture shines through every photograph - from his subtle and elegant black-and white images of Diana, Princess of Wales (the last formal shots published before her death) to his highly touted shots of Madonna. An unwavering individual in a world that all too often celebrates the tried and true, Mario Testino finds inspiration in the new, the young, and the different. It is this sensibility that keeps his pictures fresh, and his career going at a rapid pace.
