Testino has been shooting Moss from the very beginnings of her career and the fifteen years of photography presented here (1996 thru 2010) show the close, familiar and intimate relationship between photographer and subject (in fact, both were involved in selecting the pictures for this book and both offer editorial on the relationship as well.) The photos range from the casual to the iconic and if there is any complaint here, it's that there may be too many shots that are out of focus - some work that way while others are a bit superfluous. But as a career retrospective capturing a decade and a half relationship of photographic trust, "Kate Moss by Mario Testino" holds together as a document of the working relationship between two icons, each in their own respective fields.
What makes the book special is that it showcases through a series of beautiful photography a special relation between two stars based on trust and respect.
This is a highly recommended book for fans of Kate Moss and photography in general, it makes a great gift as its overall production is of the highest artistic quality.
There are a lot of photographers who dismiss Mario Testino as mere fashion photography.
Don't listen to them.
You can like him more or you can like him less but he is just so important and actually very good indeed you just need to own all his books in order to have a rounded contemporary photography education.
I personally prefer Nigel Parry's dark brooding portraits.
I prefer Jean Loup Sieff in black and white nude study.
I prefer Guy Bourdin in color exotica.
I prefer Richard Avedon's fashion photography.
I prefer Terry O Neill's celebrity photography.
But we are picking hairs.
Mario Testino is great, his books are a must have. Its a no brainer. Buy the book!
This book is big and the photos are full on.
You may know many already but there's enough unseen to make it worthwhile.
Many are snapshots that look like they are from his Contax compact 35mm camera with on camera flash in color and BW, so blown up the grain is like pebble dashing, but Mario knows how to do perfect shots when he cares to and includes some from commercial work and his recent exhibition in Madrid Museo Thyssen gallery. The quick snaps have all his trademark energy and positivity. Kate Moss's photos are fun. Some are sexy, some are cookie.
You may like her more or less but she's just wonderful. Check her first casting reel on YouTube to see how incredible she was from day one.
I myself am a portrait and wedding photographer but take my hat off to Mario he beats me hands down. He is the perhaps the hardest working most productive guy there is. He never stops. His air miles must be like George Clooney's in the film.Read more ›
I recommend this for those who want a nice coffee table book on fashion. There isn't any writing in the book just photographs. Get it if you love to collect fashion books like me.

Most of the photos in this book should never have been published. It looks like the photographer needs to take a class on composition. Read morePublished on December 6, 2012 by Alagosa
