Mario de Janeiro Testino

Culture Watch

Long before becoming one of the world’s most sought-after photographers, 14-year-old Peruvian Mario Testino was just a teenager on vacation in the Brazilian cultural capital. So beloved is Testino in the region today that he holds the state’s highest honor, the Medalha Tiradentes— and the feeling is mutual. Mario Testino: Rio de Janeiro (Taschen) serves as a visual amor letra to the people and places that earn the so-called “Marvelous City” its nick-name. Giselle Bündchen contributed an essay to the book, which is available with a yellow, orange or red plastic jacket—inspired by the varying colors of the town’s famed sunsets.
