Bigger than life, Mario Testino's photographs are indeed "in your face."  The exhibition consists of 122 super-sized  photographs of superstars and supermodels in various stages of dressed and undressed.  Many of the photographs, on a smaller scale, of course, appeared in Vanity Fair, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar.  However, many could have been published only in Playboy or other magazines of that ilk.

There are photos of Madonna, Naomi Campbell, Demi Moore, Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Aniston, many of Giselle Bunchen, who is married to Tom Brady, Nicole Kidman, Beyonce and many.

A very different side of Testino emerges in "British Royal Portraits," a collection of eight color and eight black-and-white photos.

There is only one photo of Diana, Princess of Wales, the mother of a future king of England.
