The David Gandy by Mario Testino editorial is heaven sent.
The beloved model/columnist David Gandy comes as close to a Greek god that any human can. The combination of his dark features and the luminescent background creates a cloud-skimming scene. Gandy is (half) clothed in chemically white Calvin Klein and Armani. The photographic artistry by Mario Testino is technically and aesthetically brilliant. The lighting is hazy, yet still clearly defines Gandy's drool-inducing build.
The editorial was shot for VMAN, issue number nine. The men's magazine focuses on fashion, art, culture and innovation. The magazine's site describes its publication, "...shines a new light on more established stars, while also uncovering fascinating new trends, ideas, styles, destinations, and objects for the man who needs to stay up to date with the latest and greatest in international society and culture."
Wouldn't you say that the David Gandy by Mario Testino shoot is god's gift to humankind?
