Steve McCurry Shoots The Pirelli Calendar

Behind The Scenes Video

Steve McCurry is definitely one of my favourite photojournalists and an absolute master of his art. I was a little surprised to hear he shot the Pirelli Calendar for 2013, but watching this behind the scenes video makes the whole thing make sense! He shot it very much in his way and I love the concept of taking it away from the traditional nudes and making more about these amazing women featured. The style of images as one would expect are different too. Beautifully posed models, lit in some cases by LED lights, but juxtaposed against real surroundings, with elements of street photography and teh natural world around them.

Below is the short version of the video:
