LIMA | Museo Mario Testino (MATE) is a museum that brings Peruvian artists and culture to worldwide attention, while offering the best of international contemporary art and photography. It was founded by photographer Mario Testino in 2012 and is housed in a restored 19th century mansion.

On the first floor you’ll find Testino’s permanent collection, a varied collection of photographs from his career. There’s the Alta Moda series, which focuses on Peruvians locals from the Andean region of Cusco, wearing traditional festive attire, and his fashion and celebrity portrait shots. If you’ve not heard of Mario Testino before, you’ll probably recognise a few of his photos – he’s taken iconic shots of individuals such as Madonna, Beyonce, The Rolling Stones, Nicole Kidman, Roger Federer, and David Bowie. Most famously, in 1997 he took the last official portraits of Princess Diana before her death for Vanity Fair.

There’s a lot to take in here – the sheer breadth of topics and subjects covered makes for a fascinating museum, and that’s before you move onto the non-permanent collection. MATE features a rolling programme of temporary exhibitions, which link the vision behind Testino’s work and its connection to the different artists featured at the museum. It all comes together to form what, for us, is one of Lima’s best museums, and a must visit for any visitor to the city.
