At MATE, the Brand New Lima Gallery of Fashion Photographer Mario Testino

Where: Lima, Peru
October 25, 2012 at 6:22 PM | by | ()

Flip open the ginormous tome that is the September issue of Vogue magazine and, almost near the end, this stunning photo presents itself. The entire spread is essentially a love song by the Vogue-favorite photographer Mario Testino, to his native Peru. Taking editor-at-large Hamish Bowles along for a ride down to Lima, the two visit Testino's newly opened museum, MATE.

MATE stands for Asociación Mario Testino and, since its premiere exhibiton "Todo o Nada" features only Testino's work, MATE comes across as a monument the photographer has built to himself. Even visiting MATE on our own, last month during a brief stay in Lima, can't shake that feeling. MATE will eventually feature the work of other Peruvian artists within its restored walls, but for now it's the domain of Testino devotees.

Bust Out the Ugly Sweater! Southwest Will Snap Holiday Photos at the Airport

November 2, 2011 at 2:58 PM | by | ()

Halloween is now officially over, so that’s means it’s time for Christmas. Sure there’s Thanksgiving—and a lot of shopping—to do first, but in the minds of retailers and marketers the holidays have more than arrived. It’s true for Southwest Airlines and Microsoft, as the two are again joining together to snap plenty of holiday photographs at an airport near you.

Beginning on December 13, the airline and Windows are teaming up to offer free holiday photos at 21 different airports around the country. That means that along with dealing with flight delays, expensive fares, and assorted fees, you’ll also have to bring along an ugly seasonal sweater to make your holiday complete.

10 Years Later, Photographer Joe McNally Exhibits 'The Faces of Ground Zero'

August 24, 2011 at 12:52 PM | by | ()

"Wow, I can't believe it's been ten years already." These are the words that'll drop from many lips, in a range of languages, for the next couple months as we hit the decade mark for the events of September 11, 2001. Everyone has a story—where you were, what you were doing, who you know connected to the tragedies—but can they really compare to those of the First Responders and their families? The history of 9/11 appears on their faces, deepening worry lines and giving a glint to a previously stony glare.

These are the people who star in ginormous polaroids by famed photographer Joe McNally, the polaroids which first went on display in 2002 after McNally captured the images in a studio on the Bowery, mere weeks after the World Trade Center came down. Revisiting the project these ten years later, McNally has switched to a Nikon DSLR but the subjects are the same.

The exhibit—"Faces of Ground Zero: 10 Years Later"—opens today and runs through September 12, 2011. It's located on the first and second levels of the Time Warner Center in Columbus Circle, New York City, and is completely free to the public. We stopped in just this morning...

Southwest Will Snap Your Holiday Family Portrait for You, at 26 Airports in December

November 24, 2010 at 3:55 PM | by | ()

Dude, we understand. It's that time of the year again when you're forced to wear a turtleneck and maybe even a gaudy sweater for the sake of presenting a friendly family portrait in your Christmas cards. Ugh. Wellll you can foget about all that mess, because Southwest Airlines will do it for you...while you're already at the airport all together with your family.

Truly, this is a unique idea. It's so hard to get travelers excited about hitting the overbooked skies that perhaps a little free cheezing in front of a camera could help.

From December 2-December 26, Southwest and Windows 7 will set up at 26 US airports to make the family portrait magic a reality. Here's how it works:
