New exhibition to display images of Princess Diana taken by Mario Testino
today May 10, 2017
Fifteen portraits taken by Peruvian fashion photographer Mario Testino of the late Princess Diana will be showcased this summer at Althorp, Diana’s family home and her resting place.
The iconic collection of images was initially shot for Vanity Fair and turned out to be the last official portraits of the Princess of Wales before her unfortunate death in 1997. All fifteen images will be on display in the exhibition rooms within Althorp’s Grade I-listed Stables.
The photographs now form part of the permanent exhibition at Museo Mario Testino in Lima, Peru, where a room is dedicated to a selection of images. The Althorp exhibition will be the first time the entire collection is on display in over 12 years.
“It’s a real privilege to have been given the opportunity to photograph someone like Princess Diana, and to have the images become symbolic of her kindness and beauty. I’m very happy to see them at Earl Spencer’s home, which brings her back to her family estate,” said Mario Testino.
The exhibition ‘Diana, Princess of Wales’ will run from 1 May until 8 October 2017.
