We'll meet and start at the Gund Gallery, LG31 (for Mario Testino In Your Face)

1. Mario Testino In Your Face October 21, 2012 - February 3, 2013, Gund Gallery, LG31

Get an inside look at some of today’s most elusive and exclusive subjects through the lens of renowned celebrity photographer and Vogue and Vanity Fair contributor Mario Testino. Testino's first US exhibition represents the brilliant range and quality of his thirty-year career and includes striking, larger-than-life images of international superstars such as models Kate Moss, Stephanie Seymour, and Gisele Bündchen, actors Brad Pitt, Nicole Kidman, and Gwyneth Paltrow, musicians Mick Jagger, Madonna, and Lady Gaga, and athletes David Beckham and New England's own Tom Brady. Enter Testino’s glamorous world and mingle with his people—formal portraits juxtaposed with private party snapshots, nudes with fashion, black and white with color, and interiors with exterior settings—you will feel as though you have stepped into the pages of one of today’s most entertaining and spectacular fashion magazines.
