Adorable 2019 Calendar of Alpacas Living Luxuriously All Year Long

Funny Alpaca Photos in a 2019 Calendar by Daniel Gebhart de Koekkoek

Photographer Daniel Gebhart de Koekkoek has an altruistic wish for us in the new year. He wants us to lead happier lives—something that he’s helping us achieve with his quirky 2019 calendar. Called Better Living With Alpacas, the yearly calendar features a cast of the domesticated creatures as they enjoy the lap of luxury in opulent interior settings. Each month highlights a fluffy camelid experiencing the good life in stunning hotel suites and rooftop bars.

Koekkoek views alpacas as great inspirations for how we should approach life. “Alpacas are always positive and smile all day long,” he explains. “They transport their positive energy to others and make them feel better.” Koekkoek knows from first-hand experience. “When I first met them [the alpacas], I drove out from the city to meet up with them and was still stressed out from everyday work. But when I looked into their smiling faces, I felt a big relief and had to smile back at them.”

The ridiculous sight of an alpaca poking its head out of the shower is enough to make us grin, and it speaks to the overall goal of Better Living With Alpacas. Aside from containing delightful photographs of these creatures, Koekkoek hopes to impart some of the happiness he felt while meeting them. Through the simple act of glancing at the calendar, some of his joy is transferred to us.

Koekkoek’s calendar is now available through the Office Magazine online shop.
