Alice in Wonderland, is a vaguely tattered and reckless theme, but somehow Tim Walker, photographer of the Pirelli Calendar 2018, has been able to propose something new. A light flavor from the end of the last century is evident with an exceptional cast as Naomi Campbell, Adut Akech, Adwoa Aboah Alpha Dia, Djimon Hounsou, Duckie Thot, Jaha Dukureh, King Owusu, Lil Yachty, Lupita Nyong’o, RuPaul, Sasha Lane, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Slick Woods, Thando Hopa, Whoopi Goldberg, Wilson Oryema, & amp; Zoe Bedeaux. As you can see from names and images, the shots have a cast all blak as protagonists. Walker’s decision to remain completely true to the true story written by Carroll has surely been victorious, fruitful, dreamy, romantic, sexy and fun.
The 45th edition of the calendar replicates the all-black cast as it was only in 1987 by Terence Donovan. Walker said he chose to re-interpret this classic fairy tale in a black key to create a strong contrast to enhance the story of this vast community. He also stated, “As a photographer, you’re standing there, focusing your camera, and looking at a certain white body shape yet again. It does become relentlessly uninspiring when there are so many other forms of beauty in the world.”
The all star cast that was in the calendar said he was all excited and happy to participate in such a project. Not only because of the contrast to the classicity of history, but to the plot of the book that is unfortunately still present. You do not have to hide in the rabbit’s jaw and wait for the world to walk and run its course, you have to live your time and change it.
Although the racial issue may seem like a disagree like that on violence against women and gender discrimination, unfortunately we still live in a society that allows discrimination of all sorts and sometimes even calls them, creating differences only with understanding and ‘breaking down barriers and fear. Abbatting walls, physical and cultural.
