Every year such a season is awaited with great anticipation the Pirelli calendar which over the years has built his own myth, with the top personalities posing in front of the camera and the special concepts it presents.
For 2024 there is one more reason after the calendar completes 60 years of progress, since 1964 when he debuted. To date they have been presented a total of 50 Pirelli calendars which have been edited 39 different photographers.
The anniversary edition is entitled “Timeless” and is the work of the 28-year-old Ghanaian visual artist Prince Gyasi who is one of the youngest artists to take on this challenge.
The first thing he did was to identify the faces that he would like to see in his creation. To come up with the final list he mentally went back a few years, in his childhoodand revoked the personalities who inspired himleaving their own mark with their course.
One of the first choices was Naomi Campbell which appears in the calendar under the title “Time Stopper». «Naomi is not of my generation but still today she is a symbol for all of us. This can only be achieved if one devotes himself completely to his work and his beliefs“, said Gas.
She is the fifth appearance of 53-year-old Naomi on the Pirelli calendar. The last time we saw her was in 2018, while she had appeared earlier in 1987, 1995 and 2005. Her first photo has arrived at the age of 16 and she was the one who caused the biggest “noise” with her impressive presence.
In addition to the “black gazelle”, in the new calendar they appear and other important personalities like the actors Irdis Elba and Angela Bassettthe author Margot Lee Shetterlythe poet Amanda Gormanthe king of Ashanti His Majesty Osei Tutu IIthe former soccer player Marcel Desaillyetc.
THE COVER OF THE DIARY WITH THE “YOUNG” PRINCE GYASI
Each shot of Gyasi was meticulously designed by composing images that they look more like a painting rather than a photo. Downloading the cover is dedicated to him and shows him in a moment of his youth where he is represented by child model Abul Faid Yussif.
