Pirelli Calendar 2008

"Pearls of the Orient" is the title given to the 35th edition of Pirelli Calendar, shot for the first time in China (and entirely in Shanghai) features eight Western fashion top models and three Chinese beauty among which actress Maggie Cheung. Also for the first time ever, the calendar gets a more innocent, graceful look, a disappointment maybe to those who expected the usual images of the past Pirellis and a joy for art photography's fans.

Patrick Demarchelier, a legendary name in fashion and art photography, took once again the task of creating 12 visual stories, after the 2005 edition of Pirelli Calendar shot in Brazil. And he carries it out quite brilliantly.

His impressive career includes collaboration with top fashion magazines: Vogue (American, French and British publications), Harper's Bazaar and Vanity Fair. In 1989 he became, by request, Princess Diana's official photographer. He also shot for fashion and beauty campaigns including top brands such as: Chanel, Ralph Lauren, Versace, Louis Vuitton, Armani, Guerlain, Lancome.

At the present, Patrick lives with his family in New York, recently signed a contract with Conde Nast trust and is planning solo art photography exhibitions in cities like Moscow, Paris, London and Brazil.
