Mario Testino is one of the world's most successful fashion and portrait photographers, whose images are known for their freshness and intimacy. Born in Peru, Testino has been fascinated by Rio de Janeiro since his first summer vacations.
"When I was 14, on vacation, going from my house to the beach and seeing everyone everywhere in their little bathing suits - the girls and boys were so sexy and carefree and wild - I just couldn't believe it." This easy sensuality, sexual freedom and zest for life left a deep impression; Testino has been back ever since, for work and pleasure, passion and inspiration.
Mario De Janeiro Testino captures the essence of this incomparably seductive city and its sultry inhabitants, with candid shots of exquisite cariocas showing off their young flesh, including supermodel Gisele Bundchen. From the breathtaking panoramas at sunset to the vibrant chaos of the world-famous carnival, this is Testino's love poem to the Brazilian metropolis that captured his teenage heart and never let go.
