Celebrated son Mario Testino returned to his city of birth to open MATE, a stunning visual portoflio of the photographer’s most famous works. Fashion, film, and music’s great and glamorous feature in two permanent collections at the Barranco-based museum, spanning the careers of Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, the Rolling Stones, and Angelina Jolie among others. It’s not all glitz and celebrites, however: Alta Moda, Testino’s take on high Andean fashion, is equally captivating. Most striking, however, is the Diana, Princess of Wales, exhibit, a haunting collection of images first published in 1997 in Vanity Fair.
