I never expected to find Steve McCurry’s distinctive portraiture on a Pirelli calendar !
Shot in Rio the calendar broke with Pirelli tradition and featured fully clothed women against the backdrop of a vibrant city. The Golden Rivet calendar features 40’s forces-style pin-up images , no nudes, hence I found it interesting to see how McCurry approached the task.
He photographed intelligent, independent women focusing on who they were , the person beneath the skin.The Galaxy girls who feature on Andy’s calendar are also smart , individual , and committed to their community. I plan to take portraits of the girls involved , I hope I can capture something of their uniqueness too.
See link below , its really interesting to watch.
