Published in tandem with the opening of Mario Testino’s exhibition "Heat" in Dubai, curated by Simon and Michaela de Pury, this exhibition catalogue explores Testino’s distinct oeuvre at the crossroads of portraiture, fashion and fine art.

The title, "Heat", was coined by Mario himself, as a shorthand reference to both the setting in Dubai and also for his outlook of intensity and vibrancy. "Heat" consists of a variety of works – many that have been widely exhibited at museums and galleries internationally – alongside pieces that have not previously been shown. Lastly, iconic shots of his acclaimed Peru series, Alta Moda, have been included as a tribute to his roots and the strong bond that links him to his home country.

Contributions by Simon de Pury, Gregor Muir, Abdullah K. Al-Turki & Princess Alia Al-Senussi. Designed by MARIOTESTINO+. Softcover with jacket, 37 x 27 cm. Published by de Pury de Pury; Multilingual edition (25 Feb 2016).
