Mario Testino: In Your Face
At TheseFineWalls we are all for fashion photography. Today we take a look at beloved fashion and portrait photographer Mario Testino’s ‘In Your Face’ exhibition currently on display at the Staatliche Museum in Berlin.
‘In Your Face’ takes visitors behind the scenes of high fashion and Hollywood glamour—photos of the young, leggy Naomi Campbell and then-boyfriend P. Diddy, party pics of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, candid shots of Tom Ford giggling with Stella McCartney, and, of course, images of Testino’s most favorite muses–Linda Evangelista, Claudia Schiffer and Kate Moss. This beautiful cast of characters, among many other actors, models and musicians, makes the narrative of Testino’s expansive career come alive in the Kulturforum of Berlin’s Staatliche Museum.
Testino’s exhibition is not only a dazzling display of his portrait photography, but also a profound account of his advertorials for luxury clients such as Chanel, Gucci, Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana and Michael Kors, many of whom have graced the pages of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Vanity Fair and more.
Read more about the exhibition here, and if you love Testino as much as we do, you may fall for These Fine Walls exhibitor Niklas Hoejlund, whose sensual portrait photography adds just the right amount of flirtation to any interior.
‘In Your Face’ runs until July 26, 2015, so be sure to check it out if life takes you to Berlin.
