The pictures are overphotoshopped, the models were shot separately from the background and the final effect looks very artificially.I am not fan of pirelli, lavazza etc calendars photography, but this one seems pretty horrible and looks like a bad joke. You can have a look at the hole calendar HERE , the critique is HERE and HERE

I shot this picture in Korce, Albania. Korce is well known for beeing Gypsy town. I spotted this rabbit hanging to dry after washing in the area where Roma people live. Unfortunately, after spending about half an hour with beautiful Roma women (they kept on asking me: are you married) and children I was chased away by their husbands/parents in not so gentle way...

Most of the people in Benin go to a traditional healer first, and only when he fails to cure them they make a visit to regular doctor.Voodoo is a very complicated religion; often not understood by westerners. It is estimated that Voodoo is about 4000 years old. Voodoos' cradle in West Africa is Benin and Togo.September 2006..VOODOO RELIGION REPORTAGE AVILABLE ONLINE HERE.

A man shows fish he managed to catch with his traditional fishnet, St-Louis, Senegal. Many of Senegalese fishermen have problems with supporting their families because of overfishing. St-Louis was the first French settlement in Africa. It is placed on the Island near the river's Senegal mouth. The old part of town is full of colonial architecture and has barely changed since 18th century.
