Posted in Uncategorized on December 6, 2012 by stevemccurry

Being selected to shoot the 2013 Pirelli Calendar was a great honor, and the
beauty of Rio made it
the perfect backdrop.

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.

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.

I enjoy photographing wall art all over the world; the spirit of Rio came alive through the images and words on the walls.
