Steve McCurry has changed things up dramatically for this year’s Pirelli calendar, as you might expect from a photojournalist better-known for shooting war-torn lands than sun-kissed beauties. Not only are the models in the Rio shoot fully-clothed, they are also socially responsible figures who head up charities helping the local populace. There’s also striking absence of Rio’s most famous and cliched landmarks in the photos, all of which makes the 40th edition of the company’s famous calendar a refreshing surprise for 2013.
