Currently, the Dallas Contemporary features the exhibit ALTA MODA by fashion magazine photographer, Mario Testino. ALTA MODA is Spanish for “high fashion”. The exhibit entails a series of photographic portraits documenting Peruvians in their vibrant kaleidoscope patterned and ornately adorned traditional and festive dress from Cusco, one of the mountainous regions of Peru.

“Testino was on assignment for British Vogue in Peru when he asked for costumes for his shoot and was told he should come choose them himself. “So I went, and when I saw what they had, I was, like, ‘Oh, my God! I have to document this.’ ” Inspired by the work of indigenista photographer Martín Chambi, Testino borrowed a re-created backdrop from Chambi’s family in sepia-like hues that contrast the vivid and joyous ensembles worn by the Peruvian subjects of the photographs. “It’s a beautiful backdrop, no?” Testino asks proudly. It was, but the foreground of the photos were equally arresting.
