  • Catalogue Essay

    This larger-than-life portrait of Gisele Bündchen by Mario Testino was featured in a story in Vogue Paris in December 2002/January 2003. Bündchen’s roots in Brazil inspired the entire shoot, and within the spread, Testino’s photographs are paired with images from the model’s childhood. Testino’s work has been exhibited internationally, including the Shanghai Art Museum; MALBA, Buenos Aires; and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Alongside his 35-year practice as a photographer, Testino was appointed the Grand Cross Order of Merit in 2010, one of the highest honours in his native country of Peru, and was awarded the Order of the British Empire in 2013 in recognition of his remarkable career and charity work.
