A First Look at The 2012 Pirelli Calendar Shot by Mario Sorrenti

Mario Sorrenti is pretty much the man. How could you not be when you get tapped to shoot the most coveted calendar in the world? He’s the first Italian photographer in the 39 issue history to photograph the Pirelli Calendar, which is actually pretty strange considering the tyre manufacturer has its roots in the country. Featuring models Isabeli Fontana, Kate Moss, Lara Stone, Natasha Poly, Joan Small, Edita Vilkeviciute, Malgosia, Saskia de Brauw, and Guinevere Van Seenus, as well as actresses Milla Jovovich, Rinko Kikuchi, and Margareth Madé, the cult calendar fittingly named ‘Swoon’ is an object of desire. Also for the first time ever, the calendar’s presentation has changed: the photographs are now contained in a sleek canvas portfolio, with the viewer having to change the pictures to whichever month they desire.

Introducing Bronze Bones

This past Friday in an intimate gathering on the Sunset Terrace at Mondrian South Beach over a year’s worth of hard work came to fruition. Collaborating with my talented friends The Principals, we introduced a set of dominoes, made by hand in Brooklyn, NY out of bronze. Over hours of drinks, we played until the sun set and the darkness finally pushed us out. A big thank you goes out to the Morgans Hotel Group who accommodated us on this special occasion. Look for something even more special from the both of us in the coming week but, for now, we hope you enjoy the Bronze Bones.
