Throughout his 30-year career, fashion photographer Mario Testino has photographed some of the world’s most famous faces. Whether he’s working with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (Wills and Kate for short) or the indefatigable Kate Moss, Testino always captures the essence of his subjects, no matter how inaccessible they may seem.
In celebration of Testino's current MFA Boston exhibit, Taschen has published In Your Face ($60),a collection of photographs from the exhibit. Not only does this gigantic coffee-table tome include some of Testino’s most famous work—including behind-the-scenes shots of Kate Moss, fashion pictorials with Gisele Bündchen, and Jennifer Lopez’s androgynous boxer spread—you’ll also find intimate moments from his personal life.
Whether for someone who has tracked Testino’s career over the ages or for someone who’s just discovering his incredible body of work, In Your Face would make a great gift this holiday season.
