Undressed – Mario Testino

Mario Testino. Undressed
Matthias Harder, Manfred Spitzer, Carine Roitfeld
Softcover, 24.4 x 34.5 cm, 144 pages
ISBN 978-3-8365-6646-9
Multilingual Edition: English, French, German

Mario Testino’s Undressed removes various layers. Coinciding with an exhibition conceived exclusively for the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin, this intimate series explores the notion of undressing in photography as much as it lays Testino’s archive bare, probing beyond the photographer’s established public image to reveal a deeper understanding of his practice and oeuvre.

The 50 featured photographs center on the naked body, alternately exploring and pushing the traditions and boundaries between sex, gender identity, and fashion. Honoring the influence of Helmut Newton, the images become abstracted body landscapes, the protagonists appearing as mere form, a torso, even a statue.

A special highlight are previously unseen photographs shot in the Testino studio, in which an exuberant atmosphere intermingles with the implicit frisson of nudity and where playfully amorous dynamics never slip into the obscene or pornographic.

Testino’s lineup ranges from supermodel protagonists, such as Kate Moss and Amber Valletta, to anonymous, androgynous men; from individual portraits to group photos. We see many intimate moments, some caught candidly, some consciously orchestrated, such as a young man shaving a woman’s upper pubic hair in a luxurious bathroom. Following in the tradition of SIR, many of the images may be seen to redefine masculine paradigms in the same way that Newton created his own brand of female beauty.

As emotions, aesthetics, and bodies meet, Testino grants new insight into his world-famous work. The images are accompanied by an introduction from curator Matthias Harder, a candid conversation piece with Carine Roitfeld, as well as an essay from psychiatrist and psychologist Manfred Spitzer who offers a neuroscientific perspective on our visual perception of bodies and beauty.

The Ago TT
MV Agusta Brutal 800rr by Deus Ex Machina

The Deus Emporium of Postmodern Activities in Venice, California is proud to formally introduce the Ago TT. Motorcycle design director Michael Woolaway built this custom Brutale 800rr commissioned by MV Agusta as a homage to the marque’s rich racing heritage capturing the spirit of Tourist Trophy racing of the 60’s and 70’s. The bike is aptly named after the great motorcycle racer Giacomo Agostini who won 13 Grand Prix championships and 10 Isle Of Man TT’s between 1966 and 1973 astride the MV Agusta marque.
