I got the opportunity when I went to Barranco a district in Peru, to visit the MATE Mario Testino Photography Museum. Everyone who visits Barranco must visit this place! It is filled with Mario Testino’s finest photography, and worth the time to see him most profound photography. Mario Testino is a world renowned photographer who was born in Peru. As a lover of taking photos of people, I was in awe of how he captures known people for their true selves and capturing their essence with poise and honesty. He even photographed for Princess Diana. He photographed her intimately, and very personally.
Below are some of my favorite shots of him from the MATE museum.
THE Princess Diana exhibit was the most beautiful photography that I had seen from him. He captured her brilliantly and saw a side of her that the public didn’t see. For once she felt free, and in that captured self-power!
