The 2017 Pirelli Calendar is continuing last year’s tradition of celebrating women beyond glitz and glamour with pared down images by German photographer Peter Lindbergh. The legendary photographer is the first to helm the project three times and titled the series of black and white shots Emotional.
Wow, do I want to know more about the creator of these radiant photographs! All I know about the photographer is that his username on Flickr is bbe022001. Most importantly, though, I know that I am captivated by this collection.
The main focus of each marvelous image is the area around the Moon Bridge in Taipei, Taiwan. The soft blue, monochromatic palette and the sparkling rays of sunshine make the images feel so peaceful. The crystal clear water allows for a perfect reflection of an upside down world and his tones, lighting, and composition are exceptional. I really could get lost in these misty landscapes for hours. Mr. bbe022001–these photographs are amazing!
