Pirelli presented the 2019 edition of its famous calendar at a gala evening in Milan. This 46th edition shot by photographer Albert Watson and called “Dreaming” has the underlying theme of dreams.
A dream cast for the Cal’
Each year, Pirelli brings together what is best in terms of photography to create its iconic calendar. After a 2018 edition created by Tim Walker, it is Scottish photographer Albert Watson who had the privilege of shooting the 2019 Pirelli Calendar. Focused on the theme of dreams, it brings together stars from the film, dance and fashion worlds. In total, 40 shots were chosen to portray this dreamlike and cinematic world. We find a nude Laetitia Casta with the dancer Sergei Polunin in her dream of artistic success as a painter.
“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.
At the Geneva International Motor Show, Pirelli has given priority to its P Zero range, with in particular, a new specific “Elect” sidewall marking and the launch of “Color Edition” tyres as original equipment.
American tyre manufacturer Goodyear has presented a concept vehicle from the 1950's for which it supplied translucent tyres. Found after all these years, the “Golden Sahara II” is exhibited at the Geneva International Motor Show.
Goodyear never fails to surprise visitors at the Geneva International Motor Show. After the spherical tyre in 2016 and the moss-filled tyre in 2018, this year the American tyre manufacturer has unveiled its new innovative concept tyre, developed for autonomous, flying cars of the future.
