Photo report's insight:

"30 years ago in the small Brazillian town of Caconde, in the state of Sao Paulo, construction on a large home for the elderly (asilo) was started by a local priest to alleviate conditions in the town’s already crowded facility. The structure was abandoned when the priest moved to another town. (…)

These simultaneously occurring stories are the history of small town." - GREG MILLER

Steve McCurry goes to Brazil for Pirelli | Photographer: Steve McCurry

Steve McCurry goes to Brazil for Pirelli | Photographer: Steve McCurry | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Having had a steady stream of fashion photographers shoot its calendar for the past decade or so, Pirelli has switched things up for next year’s edition by tapping Steve McCurry. A Robert Capa Gold Medal winner, the American photojournalist is best known for his 1985 National Geographic cover “Afghan Girl.” 

That credential was enough to win over Liya Kebede, one of the 11 models who posed for McCurry. Kebede said, “That made it really interesting because who doesn’t know the photograph of that Afghan girl?” 

The fact that she, Karlie Kloss, Adriana Lima and the other eight models featured in the 2013 “Cal,” as it is called, are each involved with a humanitarian project or nongovernmental organization made for a winning combination. 

The whole arrangement was not a stretch for McCurry, a Philadelphia-born, Pennsylvania State University graduate, who said, “Much of what I have done in my career is portraiture, and I have done various things in fashion, including a few shows in Milan...”

Photo report's insight:

Chances are you already know Steve McCurry as the man who took one of the most iconic photos of our time. It was of a 12-year-old Afghan refugee girl who’s piercing green eyes told us her harrowing story. The image itself was named “the most recognized photograph” in the history of the National Geographic magazine and her face became famous as the cover photograph on their June 1985 issue. Beyond just that one photo, McCurry has shot over a million images spanning 35 years. More than anything, he is one of a few that has that amazing ability to capture stories of our shared human experience. As he says,


“Most of my images are grounded in people. I look for the unguarded moment, the essential soul peeking out, experience etched on a person’s face. I try to convey what it is like to be that person, a person caught in a broader landscape that you could call the human condition.”


"Looking through his large body of work, we get to experience fantastic faraway places we can only dream about visiting. It’s in his incredible photos that we feel connected to the world at large, appreciating our similarities and our differences, our cultures and our histories, and our past and our present in a truly unique and inspiring way."

 

"To develop this project, the first thing I did was simply to observe the life of people in this part of the world. Through photogenic documentation, I wanted to tell what I had seen, how the farmers grow and harvest the coffee, and their lifestyle. I tried to show their daily habits, I entered their homes and went to the plantations, I wandered through the villages and let the images scroll in front of my eyes, to tell of the faces, the stories and the atmosphere." - Steve McCurry

Behind the scenes of the Pirelli 2013 Calendar | Photographer: Steve Mccurry

IT'S the world's most famous calendar - coveted, exclusive and not for sale. But the 2013 edition has one glaring difference.

There's zero nudity.

Normally the Pirelli Calendar features models in various stages of undress, but the chosen photographer elected to shoot the 2013 has elected to keep the clothes on.

Steve McCurry is well-known as a documentary photojournalist - famed for a 1984 National Geographic cover of a young Afghan woman - and for the Pirelli Calendar commission, he took the models to the streets of Brazil.

 

The calendar features models Karlie Kloss, Summer Rayne, Isabeli Fontana, Hanaa Ben Abdesslem, Liya Kibede, Kyleigh Kuhn and a heavily pregnant Adriana Lima.

This year’s models were chosen specifically for their extensive charity work and it was thought that nudity might "dilute the message", casting director Jennifer Starr explains.

Victoria's Secret stunner Lima, 31, is the first model to pose pregnant for the famous calendar in its nearly 50 years existence.
