From breathtaking sunset panoramas to the throbbing chaos of carnival, Mario Testino captures a love poem to Rio Janeiro, the Brazilian metropolis that first captured his imagination at the tender age of 14, and never failed to inspire him since. As hot and sultry as the city itself, the portfolio includes candid shots of exquisite cariocas, including the supermodel Gisele Bündchen.

Super Mario does marvelous Rio

Inspired by the boys and girls from Copacabana
Mario Testino is one of the world’s most successful fashion and portrait photographers, whose images are noted for their freshness and intimacy. Peruvian by birth, Testino has been fascinated by Rio de Janeiro since his earliest summer vacations. "When I was 14, on holiday, and going from my house to the beach and seeing everyone walk everywhere in their tiny bathing suits—the girls and boys were so sexy and carefree and wild—I just could not believe it."

This easy sensuality, sexual freedom and lust for life left a deep impression; Testino has been going back ever since, for work and fun, passion and inspiration. Featuring candid shots of exquisite cariocas baring nubile flesh, including supermodel Gisele Bündchen, MaRIO DE JANEIRO Testino captures the essence of this incomparably seductive city and its sultry citizens. From its breathtaking sunset panoramas, to the throbbing chaos of its world-famous carnival, this is Testino’s love poem to the Brazilian metropolis that captured his teenage heart, and never let go.

• Foreword by songwriter and singer Caetano Veloso
• Introduction by actress/TV personality Regina Casé
• Essay by supermodel Gisele Bündchen
• Softcover with plastic jacket—for beach reading—available in yellow, orange or red, inspired by Rio’s glorious sunsets!
