Often imitated and never equalled, 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. His generosity as an artist, coupled with his striking vision, infuses his work with a warmth and intensity that invites, rather than intimidates, the viewer. 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. This unorthodox collection of various images chosen by Testino from the span of his 30-year career 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 sheer brilliance of a tireless chronicler of fabulousness. This book, published in the occasion of the 'In Your Face' exhibition at the MFA Boston (opening October 17, 2012), will only be commercialized in North/Central & South America....

Mario Testino. In Your Face Reviews
[P]hotography is not about how many lights you have. It is about spotting beauty, it is about seeing that you don’t need anything, because it’s about spotting what is right.— Mario TestinoFabulous.That's really the only word for Testino and his work. In Your Face couldn't be more aptly titled, because within its (oversized) pages, you'll discover:Josh Harnett wears lipstick better than you New waxing ideas What a NYC club looks like after 2am Kate serving FACE & COLOR Papa was a rolling stone(s)Oh yeah, and the back (!) cover Testino's work has been called lewd, bombastic, too much -- but that's the point. His fashion shoots are provocative, his portraits stunning and warm, and his off-the-cuff photos full of life. In the midst of all the we-must-be-serious fashion photography, it's invigorating to take a break and enter Mario Testino's colorful, exhilarating, and titillating world.
I saw this exhibit at the Boston MFA twice. The images are brash and compelling. The book does little to illuminate these images by written word.
