Mario Testino: In Your Face

Last week I visited Mario Testinos photography exhibition, "In Your Face", at the MALBA museum in Buenos Aires. If you have the opportunity you should visit it, you have time until the 16 of June. The photographs were selected by Testino himself and vary from party shots to magazine editorials including campaigns for Gucci among others. It starts from the early years of his career in the 90's (when I was not even born) till the present. You'll be impressed by the wide variety of images displayed, as there are absolutely prepared settings, full of details as well as nudes. As one of my friends told me, what call your attention the most is the general disposition of the exhibition, but I won't spill all the details, just go and see it yourself. It's totally worth it! 
In case you don't know who is he, don't worry, I'll tell you. Mario Testino was born in Lima, Perú, currently living in London. He developed his career as a photographer specialised in fashion working for several magazines, including Vogue. Several a-lists posed for his lenses, including Madonna, Kate Moss and even members of the British Monarchy as princess Diana. As his most recent work we have his Vogue Brasil cover of Gisele Bundchen and Neymar for the world cup.  To sum up, he's somebody we should keep and eye on! 

La semana pasada visité la exposición fotográfica, "In your face", de Mario Testino en el museo MALBA en Buenos Aires. Si tienen la oportunidad lo deben visitar, tienes tiempo hasta el 16 de junio. Las fotografías fueron seleccionadas por el propio Testino y varían de tiros del partido para editoriales de revistas incluidas las campañas para Gucci, entre otros. Se inicia desde los primeros años de su carrera en los años 90 (cuando yo ni siquiera había nacido) hasta el presente. Quedarán impresionados por la gran variedad de imágenes mostradas, ya que hay ajustes absolutamente preparados, llenos de detalles, así como desnudos. Como uno de mis amigos me dijo, lo que llamar su atención al máximo es la disposición general de la exposición, pero no voy a derramar todos los detalles, sólo tienen que ir y verlo por sí mismos. Vale la pena!
En caso de que no sepan quien es, no se preocupen, lo diré. Mario Testino nació en Lima, Perú, actualmente vive en Londres. Desarrolló su carrera como fotógrafo especializado en la manera de trabajar para varias revistas, incluyendo Vogue. Varios posaron para sus lentes, como Madonna, Kate Moss e incluso miembros de la monarquía británica como la princesa Diana. Su trabajo más reciente es la portada de Vogue Brasil de Gisele Bundchen y Neymar para el mundial. En resumen, es alguien a quien no podemos quitarle los ojos de encima!
