At the moment I let inspired myself by Mario Testino work . His books and projects I can recommend … great work !
Mario Testino inspired by the Boys and Girls of the Copacabana.
His recordings , direct and intimate at the same time , Mario Testino have made it one of the world’s most successful fashion and portrait photographers. The native Peruvians had always been fascinated by Rio de Janeiro, where he spent his first summer vacation.
“When I was 14 years old during the holidays from the house to the beach and saw how the young people ran around only in brief swimwear – girls and boys were so sexy, carefree and wild – . Because I could not put it simple “
The casual sensuality , sexual freedom and lust for life left a deep impression . Testino has since come back again and again to Rio – for work and for pleasure.
Mario Testino was born in 1954 in Lima , mainly for important fashion magazines such as Vogue or Vanity Fair. He has also photographed campaigns already for almost all the major fashion labels .
