This is the first ever museum exhibition of his work and features over 120 portraits selected by Testino himself, many which have never been seen before.
Testino has created advertising campaigns for high profile clients such as Gucci, Versace, Gap and Burberry and has worked on editorial shoots all over the world. His subjects include stars from the worlds of fashion, cinema, royalty and music and include Kate Moss, John Galliano, Gwyneth Paltrow, Diana, Princess of Wales, Robbie Williams and Madonna.
A fully illustrated catalogue accompanies the exhibition.
