Pirelli Calendar 2009 – Peter Beard

If in 2008 we left the “Cal” in sake fumes, in 2009 the flagship of Pirelli abandons the Asian refinement to venture deep in black Africa. Under the eye of New York photographer Peter Beard, the cream of modeling lends itself well to a photo shoot for less exotic…

While in the latest calendar, Patrick Demarchelier had aestheticized to the extreme its models by transforming them into modern Geishas, Peter Beard does not seem to consider the subject in the same way. It must be said that the latter is more fascinated by the African savannah that the magic of make-up…

Since it is a passion – as a teenager – for the texts of Karen Blixen, this pure strain New Yorkers (and dandy at times) has made Africa his second home.His photographic work is thus focused on wildlife that surrounds it, which becomes the favorite subject of his pictures but also the fight of his life.

Contemporary of Andy Warhol and great admirer of Francis Bacon, Peter Beard dare go beyond traditional photography prints by placing his pencil strokes, brush strokes and animal blood. His work becomes a fusion between film and pigments, telling the soul of Africa and the human / animal relationship.

A living part of the year in Kenya, Peter Beard is fighting on the ground to a halt poaching and looting of Africa. His first book ( “The end of the game”) published in 1965 already sounded the alarm bell. As of today, the man admits dismayed that do not hear, and then so little …

In light of this journey, we apprehend differently the 2009 Pirelli calendar: what could pass for a slightly trashy fad actually fits perfectly in the artistic career of Beard.

The photographer did not hesitate to take in the Okavango Delta of the most beautiful girls of the moment, plunging them without remorse for what had to be the worst nightmare for some. Indeed, to capture on film the intensity of the decor, Beard is not ready to make any concessions…

Without qualms, it grows and Rianne Ten Haken and Lara Stone to frolic happily in the water when two elephants rushing at them, ordered Isabeli Fontana to open his eyes when a creature not identified him climbing the face and Malgosia Bela boasts to the seaweed benefits while it is immersed in a greenish puddle …

However, if Mariacarla Boscono and others have curly hysterics, Peter Beard can be pleased with the result. The set is dense, rich, wild with desire and imbued with a realism that can not be obtained at the limit of risk. We also liked the picture collages and montages of the artist, propelling his shots in a surreal and captivating elsewhere.

For virtually flip the calendar, the Pirelli management site. Indeed, as usual, it is not for sale and will be offered only a privileged few…
