Mario Testino In Your Face
Gund Gallery, LG31
"MFA showcases a sure grasp of glamour" —The Boston Globe
“In Your Face” offers a provocative inside look at some of today’s most elusive and exclusive subjects through the lens of renowned fashion and portrait photographer and Vogue and Vanity Fair contributor Mario Testino. Known for the elegance, beauty, style, irreverence, and contradiction of his images, Testino gives us a career retrospective arranged in compelling visual stories. These images capture the interplay of mass media, celebrity, and glamour, and offer a new understanding of his influence and aesthetic contributions to fashion and photography.
This exhibition, his first in the US, represents the brilliant range and quality of Testino’s thirty-year career and includes striking, exquisitely styled 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 soccer player David Beckham. “In Your Face” recreates the photographer’s world and his people—formal portraits juxtaposed with private party snapshots, nudes with fashion, black and white with color, and interiors with exterior settings—making visitors feel as though they had stepped into the pages of one of today’s most entertaining and spectacular fashion magazines.
