As one of the 21st century’s most traveled, acclaimed, and influential fashion photographers, Mario Testino
has unsurpassed access to the most magnetic stars of popular culture
. For some time, he has been collecting a personal archive of off-screen moments
, often snatched spontaneously before, during, and after more official sittings for Vanity Fair
, and Testino’s many clients in the world of fashion.
The result is a portrait not just of a generation of the most wanted and talked about, but an invitation to the backstage parties and unstaged moments
of Testino’s turbo-glamour life. Sometimes offbeat, but always on the pulse, Let me in!
, with Testino’s eye for a modern kind of elegance liberated from conventional polish, is a new chapter from the photographer who has already made his mark with the books Any Objections
, Front Row Backstage
, Diana Princess of Wales
, and numerous exhibitions and publications worldwide. The book’s 300 pages are prefaced by an introduction by Michael Roberts
, fashion director of Vanity Fair
, and a foreword by Nicole Kidman
