Mario Testino Undressed By Mario Testino

Undressed features 50 boundary pushing photographs that are centred on the naked body. The book mixes imagery that is both candid and posed, with the likes of Kate Moss and Amber Valletta photographed. Coinciding with an exhibition created exclusively for the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin, the images honour the influence of Helmut Newton through abstract body landscapes. Highlights of the book include unseen photographs shot in the Testino studio, an introduction from curator Matthias Harder, a candid conversation with Carine Roitfeld and a neuroscientific perspective on our visual perception of bodies and beauty from psychiatrist and psychologist Manfred Spitzer.
