Mario Testino “Alta Moda”
Queen Sofia Spanish Institute 684 Park Avenue (between 68th & 69th St) Upper East Side (UES)

Alta Moda is quite different from the portraits I am perhaps best known for,” famed fashion photographer Mario Testino said of his latest exhibit.

Testino has strayed away from his typical subjects—celebrities and fashion models—and traded them in for natives of his home country, Peru. Alta Moda—which translates from Spanish as “high fashion” -  refers to the vibrant and ornate traditional and festive dress of Peruvians in Cusco, the historic capital of the ancient Inca Empire. 

“I usually try to capture the moment,” Testino said. “But with this series, I wanted to do something very different—not just with my own work, but also with the practice of photography. I tried to fit as much time and history into each frame as possible—from the traditional and festive clothing to the Chambi backdrops to the Peruvian people in them.”

The exhibition is curated by Queen Sofia Spanish Institute chairman fashion icon Oscar de la Renta.  source

Final day of the exhibition: March 29, 2014
