Annie Lebovitz + Lavazza Italy

World-renowned Photographer Annie Lebovitz was commissioned by the Italian coffee brand, Lavazza to do their 2009 Calendar. It is shot is classic Italian style, using vivid backdrops and tricky perspective, Lebovitz brings the photographs to almost appear and feel, as if they were paintings.  By allowing the real studio background show through, it gives it an almost satirical effect. It reminds me of Banksy's reworking of classic paintings but with current cultural references, perhaps his work is that all-inspiring. I really like it. Its definitely worth a look...
