Mario Testino

Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld has recently ventured into arranging exhibits for photographers. Given his family's extensive connections in the world of art and fashion, this seems like a natural interest for Vladimir. Among other influences, his godfather is none other than Mario Testino, one of the most esteemed fashion photographers currently shooting. As Vladimir relates, “Mario is practically part of the family; he used to pick me up from school when I was younger and take me to fashion shoots. I think that maybe by spending so much time with him that maybe I have a certain eye or an instinct for photography.” Testino was born in Peru and originally intended to study economics, law, and international relations before being bitten by the photography bug. If you are interested in learning more about his work, I recommend Mario Testino Portraits.
