2017 Pirelli Calendar by Peter Lindbergh
The 2017 Pirelli Calendar has been unveiled.
The new edition was created by one of the world’s top photographers, Peter Lindbergh, which is the only one to have been asked to produce the famous Calendar for the third time.
That’s how he explains the underlying theme of this 44th edition: “In a time when women are represented in the media and everywhere else, as ambassadors of perfection and youth, I thought it was important to remind everyone that there is a different beauty, more real and truthful and not manipulated by commercial or any other interests, a beauty which speaks about individuality, courage to be yourself and your own private sensibility…“
Lindbergh has chosen the title Emotional in order to emphasize the idea behind his photos, and he portrayed 14 internationally renowned actresses. They are Jessica Chastain, Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, Rooney Mara, Helen Mirren, Julianne Moore, Lupita Nyong’o, Charlotte Rampling, Lea Seydoux, Uma Thurman, Alicia Vikander, Kate Winslet, Robin Wright and Zhang Ziyi.
He has also included Anastasia Ignatova, professor of Political Theory at Moscow State University of International Relations.
The photos were taken between May and June of this year in five different locations: Berlin, Los Angeles, New York, London and the beach at Le Touquet in France. The result is a work of art consisting of 40 evocative and powerful images.
