Donated by Pirelli, this lot is a print of a picture included in Pirelli’s 2013 Calendar.

The creator of the 2013 edition of the Calendar is Steve McCurry, one of the world’s most renowned photographers, who recounts the recent social and economic transformation of Brazil. His work celebrates the beauty and colors that represent the soul of South American country.

McCurry shot the 2013 edition of the Calendar on the streets and in the favelas of Rio and made one of his fascinating journeys of discovery, capturing stories, experiences and traits of people and faraway lands. The 2013 Pirelli Calendar tells its tales through faces drawn in graffiti and ordinary people, as well as through this year’s models whose common thread is a powerful commitment to foundations, humanitarian projects and non-governmental organizations.
