biography

Nationality: Peru
One of fashion's most sought-after snappers, Mario
Testino was born in 1954 in Lima, Peru. He came to
London in 1976, took a flat in an abandoned
hospital near Trafalgar Square, and began selling
portfolios (for £25, including hair and make-up) to
wannabe models. Today he is best known for his
highly polished, exotically bright ad campaigns and
his exquisitely styled photographs of the couture
scene all of which carry a deceptive air of
nonchalance.

Now at the top of his profession, Testino has shot
Madonna for Versace as well as photographing the
late Diana, Princess of Wales for her famous Vanity
Fair cover in 1997. His popularity with designers
and fashion editors stems as much from his
professionalism and good nature as his unerring
ability to take beautiful pictures which sell clothes.
