Somos Libres II, Rizzoli, 2014


 Somos Libres II was published in 2014 by Rizzoli, on the occasion of the exhibition of works from the Mario Testino Collection at Pinacoteca Giovanni e Marella Agnelli, curated by Neville Wakefield.


Somos Libres II explores the idea of creative freedom that is an essential part of the synergy between art and the worlds of commercial and fashion photography. In keeping with the underlying theme of a world seen and interpreted as much by the photographic lens as it is the eye, the show is first encountered through images culled from Testino’s many studio visits. The idea of freedom is in this sense immediately conveyed as the doors open, first to the artist’s studio and then to the art it yields and reveals.
