2013 Pirelli Calendar – The Cal™Posted on December 6, 2012
Being selected to shoot the 2013 Pirelli Calendar was a great honor, and the
beauty of Rio made it the perfect backdrop.
Rio’s varied landscapes of ocean, mountains and jungle, combined with a dynamic urban
culture, made it a wonderful location to shoot the calendar.
Rio’s people are every bit as amazing as the spectacular landscapes; I was inspired by their
hospitality, warmth and generosity.
Adriana is currently working with Bill Clinton's global initiative in Haiti. The aim of the Clinton initiative is to help support and develop the local Haitian economy.
I wanted to photograph a mix of everyday people combined with a very special group of women known not only for their talent and beauty, but also for their charitable work and contributions to their communities.
Isabeli is currently the Brazilian Ambassador for an organization that works in collaboration with Save the Children.
A true 'eco-optimist', her environmental activism has been widely acknowledged and honored by Vanity Fair, CnBC, outside magazine and many others.
Sonia Braga is a tireless advocate of children's rights, especially their rights to a proper education.
I enjoy photographing wall art around the world; the spirit of Rio came
alive through the images and words on the walls.
