2015

by Steve McCurry

Steve McCurry

Born in a suburb of Philadelphia, he studied cinema at Pennsylvania State University. He is the photographer who showed the world the first images of the conflict in Afghanistan. Since then, thanks to his attentive eye and extraordinary commitment, McCurry has continued to tell of war conflicts, cultures that are disappearing, and traditions both ancient and modern, while always paying attention to the human element.

The 2015 Lavazza calendar, made with Slow Food and designed by Steve McCurry, is a photographic journey into the stories of everyday heroism by Earth Defenders; women and men who defend their projects in Africa every day with courage, pride and dedication. Lavazza and Slow Food are thus on the same side as the Earth Defenders and food traditions; they are the symbols of hope for local communities, the spokesmen of a possible development and a better future. McCurry’s 12 portraits allow him to immortalize the soul, strength and humanity of these Earth Defenders. For the first time the Lavazza 2015 Calendar is for sale in limited edition in support of the project “10,000 Gardens in Africa.”
