 “I wanted to do it in a way that was different for Pirelli. Something focused on photography in its purest form”, said Albert Watson, photographer in charge of the 2019 edition of the Pirelli Calendar. “The idea was almost to write a film script." Finally, it is four little movies that tell the story of these couples pursuing their dreams in 16:9 format. “I wanted to convey the sense of these women thinking about their future in a way that uses dreams", explained the photographer who shot this edition in Miami and New York.
