Photojournalist Steve McCurry Tapped for the 2013 Pirelli Calendar

The 40th annual Pirelli calendar has reportedly been shot by photojournalist Steve McCurry, according to Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera. McCurry is a photojournalist who gained international recognition when, in 1984, he disguised himself in native clothing and sneaked across the Pakistan border into rebel-controlled Afghanistan just before the Russians invaded. He hid rolls of film by sewing them into his clothing, and the images he captured there — including the famous National Geographic cover photo Afghan Girl — won him numerous awards. Needless to say, photographing naked supermodels is a rather different assignment. The shoot reportedly took place in Brazil in May, and Modelinia reports that Karlie Kloss is supposedly included in the 2013 cast.
