Interesting...for any company to convey. Excellent work, of course.

Thanks for sharing!

Just what I always wanted on my garage wall, a gritty shot of Yoko Ono!  :p

I suppose they think "guys will buy our tires anyway... Why not go after a new market?"

It'll be interesting to see how this all plays out, or if it has any effect at all.

sigh :cry:.... i don't know who half of those women are, but i take it they're good people. that's great. but just cause you did big things don't mean you should be put in magazines to be oggled at. they have pretty people for those (though i guess a couple women in there do look good.)

if this is for pirelli, they've lost their mind. i definitely ain't buying their tires cause they support "powerful" women. i buy their tires cause they perform well, win races and go on hot looking cars, associated with hot looking women, or at least women that win races. (well, full disclosure, i've stopped buying their tires a long time ago cause they suck... but that's a different argument)

i think everyone has a gift. powerful women have their gift, and have used it wisely. i say pretty people gifted with beauty get to have their place too. share the wealth.

also, i think it's a little hypocritical to just have those women... f it, if you want to really show powerful, society changing people, give us men..... bill gates looking sexy, zuckerberg baring it all......... you're still half assing it then if not.

PS--interesting how Leibovitz holds the camera.... hmm. strangely in the majority of videos i've watched of pro women photogs they tend to hold the camera that way too. interesting correlation, in my admittedly small sample size.

X, the 1950s called. They want their view of women back.

This post reminds me of the need for a "don't like" button...

I think it brings back "Women" as a whole other than a sex symbol. I like the idea ,Beautiful women are no doubt great to look at
But it is a step back to why we photograph Women anyway..

Sorry, no red-blooded grease monkey wants to look at that all day. I predict lots of full recycle bins very soon.

She is very good, but when you surround yourself with yes people that anything coming out of her mouth, her followers tell her is great, you think you are a genius but its really in your own mind. Time to find advisers that will tell her the real deal instead of just nodding their heads. It reminds me of Eddie Murphy coming out with an album of music. No one to tell him he just isn't that good at singing.

As a woman photographer, I'm finding that style of holding a camera ridiculous. But yeah, alot of women do it. In my experience, it's art photographers and portrait photographers who do it, photojournalists do it the old fashioned way, cradling the lens. Oh well, whatever gets the shot, I guess.

I've tried holding the camera like Leibovitz but found it terribly awkward and uncomfortable. Maybe some people's joints just work differently.

I don't mind portraits of powerful women, but this just seems a bit out of place. Seems to me that Leibovitz was simply doing Leibovitz style portraits and this has little to add to Pirelli's longstanding calendar projects. This could very well be a special Times or People calendar. The least she could have done was recreate some of the more memorable Pirelli images with these women in the place of a high fashion model.


Taking photos with a fancy camera does not make me a photographer.
