3.0 out of 5 stars its good, but is it art? March 15 2004
By kit
Format:Hardcover
Everyone praises mario testino because he captures the true person inside of his subjects. This may be true for celebrities and fashion favourites, but can it be said for the lesser mortals? to begin he fails to photograph anyone unless, it seems its for money in this book. the portraits lose intimacy and emotional depth. The photographs may be glamorous but most fail to have soul and true deeper meaning. None of the photographs are of normal people, and everyone has a cheesy grin.
approach with caution.

5.0 out of 5 stars stunning simply stunning May 6 2002
Format:Hardcover
if this is the year that the name Mario Testino passes from the surgically altered lips of fashion's congnescenti to the bowels of the masses, this book will show you what the hype was really all about.
the prints are amazing, vibrant and detailed. the portraiture is stunning and all mario. i know that his previous books were always a bit of a disappointment since they tended to hilight a completely different style then the one by which he was so successfully making his living. as a believer and a fan, this book is the proof that mario may be fashion's greatest living photographer.
here it is and well worth the wait. the perfect south beach cofee table book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eye popping colors!!!!! April 30 2002
Format:Hardcover
If you catch this exhibit in London, you will be amazed at how many of the photos you will recognize not knowing who the photographer was. No wonder Princess Diana allowed only one man to catch her as she truly was, simply a woman. The fashion shots and ad campaigns are great. His celebrity photos are ok, but Testino is fashion and that is where his best work lie. In either b&w or color, these photos speak!!
