Pirelli has officially unveiled images from its 2019 calendar including Gigi Hadid, Alexander Wang and Misty Copeland as its stars. Photographer Albert Watson shot the “Dreaming” feature in Miami in a sequence that tell a story of cinema and film. Watson shares more about his inspirations:
“When I approached this project. I wanted to do it in a way that was different from other photographers, and I wondered what the best way would be. In the end, I looked for pictures that were of beautiful quality, with depth to them, and that had some kind of narrative. I wanted to create something that was more than just a portrait of somebody – I wanted it to look like a film still. I wanted people looking at the calendar to see that my aim was photography in its purest form, exploring the women I was photographing and creating a situation that would convey a positive vision of women today.”
Hadid plays the role of a heartbroken woman while Wang serves as her confidant. Copeland is shot alongside Calvin Royal III who portray a happy couple that love to move. Julia Garner and Laetitia Casta are also featured in the dreamy photo spread.
