Testino first worked with Kate Moss in Paris at the beginning of the 1990s when she was 17 and they have continued this creative partnership, particularly working on campaigns for Burberry. Moss describes a day spent working with Testino as an adventure, 'I have grown up with him photographing me - we have grown up together in a sense. The trust between us means that we are free with each other, he does not trap me into a set way of being, we find the picture together.' Photographed in Cannes.
