Mario Testino (2007)


Peruvian fashion and portrait photographer whose work has featured internationally in magazines such as Vogue, V Magazine, Vanity Fair and GQ. He has also created images for brands such as Gucci, Burberry, Versace, Michael Kors, Chanel, Estée Lauder and Lancôme. Some of Testino's most recognisable work derives from his portraits of royals, most famously, his series with Diana, Princess of Wales in 1997.

Alongside his practice as a photographer, Testino has also worked as a creative director, guest editor, museum founder, art collector/collaborator and entrepreneur.

In 2007, he formed MARIOTESTINO+, which provides creative direction, art direction, brand strategy, graphic design, film and stills production, digital and social media, product development, books, exhibitions, licensing and partnerships.

Testino is very charitable, with a foundation in Peru for young artists.
