Mario Testino, museus i moda aquesta tardor

No és la primera vegada que es fa aquest experiment. Exposicions de moda, al V&A amb mirada retro, al Guggenheim amb mirada més moderna i ara resulta que s'hi posa el Thyssen. Aquesta tardor, al costat dels paisatges impressionistes, hi col·locaran imatges del fotògraf peruà que ha fet instantànies de totes les celebrities. Museus i moda, combinació de futur?. Un patrocinador com Lancome, deu ser un bon company de viatge.

Mario Testino. Todo o Nada
From 21 September 2010 to 09 January 2011

In Association with Lancôme Paris
For the first time in Spain, the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza is presenting the work of the Peruvian photographer Mario Testino. The 54 images in the exhibition focus on both his activities as a fashion photographer (including photographs taken for magazines such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, V Magazine, Allure and The Face) as well as on his more personal images and impressions that were specially created for this exhibition. Combining analogue photography with the most cutting-edge digital technology, Testino reveals the process and implications involved in the process of removing one’s clothes to become naked. The women in his photographs are first shown in all their glamour as top models and celebrities wearing haute couture dresses, then in their naked beauty. The result is to show the different faces of the world of fashion, perfectly reflected in the relationship between the photographer and his models. What we see is the iconic “Testino woman,” strong and independent, moving at completely opposing extremes – hence the concept of “All or Nothing” – a concept that the photographer has defined and refined over the course of his career.
