Taschen recently released "Kate Moss by Mario Testino," a limited-edition big and shiny table book sharing chic and sultry photographs by the famed photographer of the international glamazon. The 1,500 signed print copies feature over 100 images spanning two decades' worth of photographs, exploring the glamorous life and career of Kate Moss.
The mentor-muse duo have been friends since the very beginning of Kate's career. She explains:
“Mario took me to a new level of glamour. I don’t think anybody had seen me as any kind of sexy model before he did. He was the one that transformed me. Before him I was just a grungy girl, but he saw me differently. He was the first to say ‘Oh, she’s quite sexy. I’ve seen her out! I know she’s not just that grungy girl.’ He’d seen me in a pair of heels, getting glamorous – and he was the first to start taking pictures of me in that way. He changed the way people thought about me as a model, for sure. Later other people started working with me in that way, but he was the first.”
Of course - "Kate Moss by Mario Testino" is already sold out, but a few copies are available on Ebay for around $2,000 each.
