"Mario Testino is recognised as the ultimate fashion photographer of his generation but his pictures of Kate Moss transcend fashion. The consequence of two decades of extraordinary friendship, and phenomenal glamour, this iconic collaboration is an intimate insight into the lives and minds of two of the world's definitive style leaders. In a rare glimpse into the mind of one of the industry's most private figures, Kate Moss also gives her insights into her life with the celebrated photographer, expanding on both their professional and personal relationship. This book catalogues the journey of one of fashion's most creative collaborations, from early days backstage at the shows to behind-the-scenes glimpses of the ground-breaking editorials they continue to produce for the world's most respected magazines. Many photographs have been chosen from Testino's private archive and are published here for the first time. This book is Mario's personal homage to his greatest muse: a young girl that captured his heart and eye with her beauty, humour and spirit, and whose image in his photographs has captured imaginations the world over."--the publisher
