Turning the camera inwards, the rising stars from Mario’s debut shoot with Double Magazine talk mirror images, growing up and viewing their lives through both sides of the lens.
In a recent art supplement for Vogue Netherlands and the Rijksmuseum, Mario selected works from the collection that had inspired him. Now, viewing Mario’s archive through the prism of the Dutch greats, the museum’s General Director, Taco Dibbits, draws out fresh insights from the canvases, lending a new perspective to both.
Amid the larger-than-life nude icons of Mario Testino Undressed, now showing at the Helmut Newton Foundation, an art historian and a psychiatrist take a walk. Matthias Harder and Manfred Spitzer, the respective historian and psychiatrist, both contributed to the catalogue text for Mario’s landmark exhibition in Berlin.
