Mario de Janeiro

photography by Mario Testino (a Taschen book)

Mario Testino is one of the world's most successful fashion and portrait photographers, whose images are noted for their freshness and intimacy. Peruvian by birth, Testino has been fascinated by Rio de Janeiro since his earliest summer vacations. He say, "When I was 14, on holiday, and going from my house to the beach and seeing everyone walk everywhere in their tiny bathing suits the girls and boys were so sexy and carefree and wild I just could not believe it. This easy sensuality, sexual freedom and lust for life left a deep impression." Testino has been going back ever since, for work and fun, passion and inspiration. MaRIO DE JANEIRO features candid shots of exquisite cariocas baring nubile flesh, including supermodel Gisele Bundchen. Testino captures the essence of this incomparably seductive city and its sultry citizens. From its breathtaking sunset panoramas, to the throbbing chaos of its world-famous carnival, this is Testino s love poem to the Brazilian metropolis that captured his teenage heart, and never let go.
