"Private View" was conceived for Mario Testino’s first ever exhibition in China in 2012. The touring show brings together 100 of Testino’s most iconic photographs, providing a unique insight into his aesthetic contributions to fashion and photography. In tandem with the exhibition, Taschen released "Private View." The book contains contributions by Graydon Carter, Karl Lagerfeld, Dr. Jennifer Allen and Patrick Kinmonth.

Testino is known for the extraordinary way in which he can capture the most private of moments. His spontaneous, intimate portraits offer the viewer new perspectives on famous faces and also create new fashion icons. For "Private View," Testino selected the pictures that meant most to him, choosing to show all of the different sides of his creative output. The influences on his portraiture for example, owe a lot to his fashion photographs and in turn his work with The Royal Family.
