I happened to see photos of the Pirelli calendar 2017. Although normally I present myself as a wedding photographer, actually I feel more a portrait photographer and the wedding is the field in which I work … But back to the Pirelli Calendar 2017: this year the photographs were taken by a great photographer, Peter Lindbergh and the protagonists are the actresses and models no longer young. Have come out of the masterpieces, each image can evoke pleasant sensations and “opens” the mind to the meaning of life. Yes, I’m not exaggerating!
You could say that they are only the images for a calendar but it is not so, this year for The Cal, Lindbergh yeah it also passed, and with him the models that have understood and certainly loved his idea. The pictures are not retouched, they are in black and white and resume of beautiful women with all the signs of aging. So very true, natural, and without wanting to fight time. Beautiful women photographed as they are, as people and not as sexy icons.
The actresses have the ability to transmit with their expressions and their eyes their real moods and the photographer was able to explain his project, his idea and get to a calendar that is sure to become a valuable work and sought … the women portrayed 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, Zhang Ziyi.
What came out is real photography!
