Mario Testino is one of the most recognized photographers in the world, known for his work in the fashion industry and his intimate portraits of the British Royal Family. Even though he has released several books and been the subject of London’s National Portrait Gallery’s most successful exhibition to date, he is only just now getting his first US exhibition in an unexpected place: the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.

There’s no doubt that Anna Wintour and Mario Testino have a close working relationship–a fact that was underscored last night, at the opening of Testino’s first US exhibition, “In Your Face,” held at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
Given the number of shots in the exhibition that come from Vogue editorials–and the number of Vogue covers Testino consistently shoots every year–it’s obvious there’s something between Anna and Mario that makes for great photos.
So, when I saw Anna (looking fabulous in Prada S/S 2013, by the way) chatting with Vogue European editor-at-large Hamish Bowles at last night’s cocktail reception (more on that later) I knew I had to ask them what it is about Mario that makes him one of Vogue‘s go-to photographer.
