Pirelli Calendar 2009 by Peter Beard
It is Peter Beard's turn in the 2009 edition of the famous Pirelli calendar.
Last year Patrick Demarchelier's images made us travel to Shanghaï and this coming year's destination is Botswana.
Through Beard's images, he communicates his distress towards the destruction of nature.
«My preoccupation, entrusted Peter Beard, is the global level of the destruction of nature. We completely forgot on what is evolution based and until what point nature's diversity is so important».
Under his guidance, seven fragile models pose alongside elephants, seeming to return to a wild state.
It is a setting that screams sincerity.
