The 2018 Pirelli Calendar concept

The Pirelli Calendar is a classic that is renewed edition after edition. The 2018 version, for example, is in charge of photographer Tim Walker, who through a surreal series will express a story first told in 1865 by the English mathematician and writer Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known as Lewis Carroll. That story is nothing less than "Alice in Wonderland."

Inspired by this fantastic narrative, Walker's images are vivid paintings full of allusions, improbable situations, and illusory proverbs. He, like many other great artists inspired by the same story, has created his own version. It has 17 black protagonists from the worlds of fashion, music, cinema and the underworld of rap.

This is not the first Pirelli calendar with an all-black cast: in 1987, photographer Terence Donovan produced a calendar in Bath - United Kingdom - that featured, among several talented figures, Waris Dirie and Naomi Campbell, just 16 years old. .

The Cal 2018 stars models Adut Akech, Adwoa Aboah, Alpha Dia, Duckie Thot, King Owusu, Naomi Campbell, Slick Woods, Thando Hopa and Wilson Oryema, actors RuPaul and Djimon Hounsou, actresses Sasha Lane, Lupita Nyong ' o and Whoopi Goldberg and rappers Lil Yachty and Sean “Diddy” Combs and designer Zoe Bedeaux.
