“Like father like son”, so they say. Sons inherit a lot from their fathers indeed – but is it possible that they also inherit love and talent for photography? According to the example of Eriberto and Estevan Oriol, it is possible to pass the talent from father to son. An iconic photographer can influence his son to become iconic himself. But, in this case, this influence even goes both ways.
Nature and wildlife lovers from all corners of the globe can now vote in one of the most prestigious photo contest in the world – Wildlife Photographer of the Year. The Natural History Museum published a shortlist of 25 photos for 2016 Wildlife Photographer of the Year. And it sure was a difficult task – they had to choose from almost 50,000 photos from 95 countries.
The photos they chose cover different styles. You can see breathtaking moments from everyday life of wild animals, or their captivating portraits. There are also surreal and abstract details of flora and fauna. The jury had a difficult task of choosing 25 photos, and you may also find it difficult to choose only one to vote for.
There is hardly anyone who hasn’t heard of Pirelli. Even us who can’t drive have heard of this tire brand – thanks to their famous calendar.
The company dates back to 1872, but the calendar was created in 1962. The sales had dropped, and they needed something to boost it. At that time, sexy girlie calendars were very popular among car manufacturers and mechanics. So Pirelli decided to create a calendar with semi-undressed women, but to raise it on a higher level. They hired fashion models and famous photographers – and the rest is history. For years, the calendar has been almost synonymous with soft porn. But they chose a different approach for 2016 and 2017 calendars. Instead of objectifying women, they empowered them.
