Picturing the Truly Superfluous ~ Mario Testino

It has been quite some time since I have ranted about the squandered talent and resources involved in fashion photography. This needlessly fawning interview with Mario Testino in The Guardian yesterday tempts me to have another go at the topic. But I cannot really muster the energy. It is interesting, of course, to note the continuity between his preoccupations - royals, movie stars and models - all captured in tediously conventional ways. The common denominator - vacuous and wasteful. How is that for a desultory reaction?
