Hit (and miss): Mario Testino’s ‘In Your Face’ at the MFA

Mario Testino’s
‘In Your Face’
at the MFA


It was a coup: Peruvian photographer Mario Testino agreed to stage his first major museum exhibition — sexy, star-studded fashion snaps as well as royal portraits — at the
Museum of Fine Arts. Opening night brought Vogue’s Anna Wintour and Hamish Bowles to Boston, along with a parade of leggy models and the biggest names in local art and philanthropic circles. But not
everyone enjoyed the show. In his
review, Globe critic Mark Feeney wrote: “The pictures all look like ads for some unmentioned product
marketed to very rich (if not very
discriminating) consumers.”
