2013 Pirelli Calendar

To celebrate its 40th calendar, the Italian company has decided to abandon the normal roster of fashion photographers such as Mario Testino and Terry Richardson, who transformed a trade publication into an annual celebration of “glamour” shots to grace the garage wall.

Instead, for 2013, Pirelli turned to one of the world’s most famous war photographers and sent him to Rio, host to the next football World Cup and Olympic Games, and vibrant hub of a country which is booming like never before.

Steve McCurry made his name documenting Afghanistan in the early 1980s, having smuggled himself into the country by growing a beard and wearing traditional dress. The American’s photograph of Sharbat Gula, a teenage Afghan refugee with vivid, haunted green eyes, became one of the most famous images in 20th-century photography after featuring on the cover of National Geographic.

“Well, I certainly didn’t think of myself as an obvious choice,” McCurry admits. “I’m not a fashion photographer. But Pirelli said they wanted me to do it my way, in my style.”

The result is an act of homage to a city and a country that Pirelli recognises as one of its most important future markets. “You can photograph nudes anywhere,” says McCurry. “But these models are clothed, and each of them has her own charity. They are purposeful and idealistic people. I wanted to photograph them in a special place, and Rio was perfect for that.”

So me and the BF went to IKEA yesterday and guess what, it was his idea. We are planning our move to the future flat already, having not even found a place yet. But A. is happy buying knife sets, chopping boards and duvet covers whilst his mum gave us the cutest spotty and stripy mugs in the world (they are even cuter in real life!).

I love it and our new duvet cover set:

Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.
