Lavazza Calendar 2012
For 20 years Lavazza calendar collaborated with international photography masters. In these two decades, experts from the shadow have created a new project expected with interest every year. Lavazza coffee brand decided in 2012 to put the spotlight on the most renowned photographers and bring a tribute to all those people, apparently invisible, which make beautiful things to come alive.
Cover photo of the Lavazza 2012 calendar is depicting the topmodel Valerie van der Graaf, photographed by Ellen von Unwerth. When it comes to cakes, colours and anniversaries, Ellen von Unwerth is a photographer who successfully cope with the explosion of colours and confetti. She signed the photo session for the 100th anniversary of Lavazza, so for the 20th anniversary of the Lavazza calendar the brand turned to Ellen again.
Among the photographers that have contributed to this new edition are David LaChapelle, Thierry Le Gouès, Elliott Erwitt, Annie Leibovitz and Albert Watson.
Photographers take fun, imagine themselves as models, fantasy characters, or bring on stage alter-egos.
