Here’s an interesting surprise. This year’s Pirelli calendar famous for showing off some of the world’s most illustrious models in the buff or some degree there of has chosen to showcase them wearing clothes for their 2013 calendar.
Shooting the calendar this year was photographer Steve McCurry who snapped 11 fully-clothed models, actresses and singers including Isabeli Fontana, Karlie Kloss, Petra Nemcova, Elisa Sednaoui and a pregnant Adriana Lima.
Said McCurry of the Rio de Janeiro shoot:
“I would say I am a street photographer doing ‘found situations.’ You can photograph nudes anywhere. But these models are clothed, and each of them has her own charity. They are purposeful and idealistic people. So I wanted to photograph them in a special place, and Rio was perfect for this.”
The calendar also includes photographs of regular Brazilian people and street art.
Reiterats McCurry: “I tried to portray Brazil, its landscape, its economy and its culture, along with the human element.”
