About the Author
Mario Testino was born in Lima, Peru, and began his career as a (largely self-taught) fashion photographer in London in the 1970s. Today he is one of the hottest artists working for the top fashion magazines, including the U.S. and international editions of Vogue and Vanity Fair.
My pictures are like my eyes, Mario Testino has said. I photograph what I see and what I want to see. What this top fashion and celebrity photographer observes here, in a richly sensual volume, is his own glittering world of exotic locations and encounters. A man who flies around the world as regularly as others drive across town, he shares his travel memories of magnificent city nights and mysterious landscapes. These photographs, almost all previously unpublished, are full of radiance, color, and humorous juxtapositions. They are pure joie de vivre, a marvelous collage by a gifted photographer at his very best.
