Dallas Contemporary presents Mario Testino: Alta Moda
Mario Testino has traveled the world photographing for high profile fashion magazines, and in 2007, while on an assignment in Peru, Testino discovered an archive of costumes conserved
at the Filigranas Peruanas Association in Cusco.
Testino began documenting the costumes over the next five years, resulting in the exhibition, Alta Moda, a series of photographic portraits of Peruvians from the mountainous region of Cusco wearing traditional and festive dress. The works present a bold departure for Testino from his work for fashion magazines, investigating both Peruvian traditions and the history of photography.
The exhibition will be on view at Dallas Contemporary from December 21.
