Mario’s Men


Over the past three decades, fashion photographer Mario Testino has shot some of the world’s most famous women—from Kate Moss to Princess Diana—in now iconic images. Less well known, though no less compelling, are his photographs of men—from Josh Hartnett wearing lipstick to David Bowie playing an imaginary keyboard. Now, the Peruvian photographer has compiled these images into a hugely handsome, limited-edition book, SIR (Taschen). Here, a preview.
