Review:

Fashion photographer Mario Testino takes pictures of what he sees--and what he sees most is models. His color-drenched fashion work is well known to readers of magazines like Vogue. He has a particular knack for catching famous posers off guard--Naomi Campbell looking over her shoulder as her exceedingly low-cut dress is zipped up her back(side); Carla Bruni, backstage at Dior, fully made-up and fully unclothed, shielding herself from Testino's spotlight. Madonna, perhaps his most famous celebrity muse, dancing offstage with her brother. All of these images are vibrant and compelling. But Testino's strength as a photographer is truly revealed when he puts his lens to less glossy images: a man's torso, crisscrossed with sheet marks; a stark black-and-white dual portrait of two young Muscovites; goldfish swarming in a plant-filled tank; a crowded, bronzed South American beach.

The hundreds of previously unpublished photographs that make up Any Objections? are reproduced on full pages of heavy, pearly paper, unfettered by captions (the photos are all easily referenced at the back of the book). If you don't think you'll be able to resist the urge to tear out the pages to hang them on the wall, you might consider buying an extra copy.

From the Publisher:

Mario Testino's first book, this text reproduces his images that have made his name synonymous with the cutting edge of fashion. His images of the Princess of Wales and Madonna are included as well as his numerous campaigns for Gucci, Versace, Missoni and others.

Book Description Phaidon Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. His tremendous energy and love of life have helped Mario Testino to earn innumerable pages in Vogue and an address book that is positively bursting at the seams. Any Objections? is Testino s first book. Provocative and unexpected, it is a lightning roller-coaster of previously unpublished images that brilliantly illuminate the vision of perhaps the shrewdest eyes in the history of fashion photography. Over the past years, the name of Mario Testino has become synonymous with the cutting edge of fashion photography. His redefining images of Diana, Princess of Wales, and Madonna, as well as numerous campaigns for Gucci, Versace, Missoni and other major fashion houses, have established him as an arbiter of style. In Any Objections? fashion and the gutter, nature and artifice, high life and low, jostle for his attention. Faces of the very famous in the least expected places, bodies of the very beautiful, landscapes and cities, close friends and extraordinary passers-by all find their place in a mode which is held together by Testino s unique vision and seductive sense of the absurd.
