THE SEDUCTION OF ANA DIAS

The creation of colorful scenes, filled with playful and lively characters styled in glamorous fashion, are the key features that make Ana Dias´s way of working unique. Her style is very much influenced by the pop culture, and brings us back to the light eroticism of the 50´s pin-up girls... but the art she creates trascends the photographic image. It tells us a story that makes us smile, and that reminds us that beauty exists and is real. “A photograph should make you feel something. It’s all about conveying a feeling, whatever it might be”, thinks Ana. “there are many photographer that inspire me. Some of which are Tony

Kelly, EllenVon Unwerth and Helmut Newton. I especially like the erotic vision they bring to the public with their pictures. The model is always on the center stage, and the shoots are filled with glamour and subtle eroticism. I also appreciate the Spanish photographer Eugenio Recuenco for his peculiar, creative and in many ways cinematographic style. In photography, there are always new things to do and new ways to go, but what is really important is to stay true to your own path, whatever it might be. I do what I like and what makes me feel happy, if it’s original, even better!”, says the photographer. www.anadiasphotography.com

AMAZING VIEWS into the

LOOKS This year’s Calendar year is titled Calendar Girls 2015, and the 12 girls in question are top and emerging models.

PIRELLI CALENDAR 2015 The 2015 Pirelli Calendar was presented to the press, guests and collectors from around the world at Pirelli HangarBicocca, the Pirelli contemporary art space in Milan. Milan was chosen as the venue with the aim of showing an iconic object with the “Made in Italy” label in the city that in 2015 is to be the flagship of Italy in the world when it hosts the Expo Milano 2015 international exhibition. The creator of the forty-second edition of The Cal™, Steven Meisel is one of the world’s most successful fashion photographers, and is known for his eclectic but also reserved personality. In an intense fiveday shoot last May in a New York studio, Steven Meisel brought the absolute centrality of women back to the Pirelli Calendar in its most classic format. 12 months in 12 shots (plus the cover).

With his astonishing creative talent and ability to interpret fashion trends, Meisel has captured some of the most representative icons of today’s society in his highly colourful images: “In my opinion”, says Meisel, “these are the key aesthetic models of today’s world. They represent the stereotypes that the fashion and star system impose upon us right now. I didn’t want to make a conceptual calendar, or link it to some particular location, but rather to create 12 posters in which women, in all their sensuality, are the absolute protagonists of 12 very different images. Since I wanted to limit the use of clothes and accessories and since I had absolute creative freedom, I found it very exciting to play with the colours, the makeup, and the materials. It was a very rewarding experience.”

BORN AND RAISED IN PARIS, DAVID BENOLIEL, FASHION AND BEAUTY PHOTOGRAPHER NOW BASED IN US BETWEEN NEW YORK AND MIAMI. DAVID IS A PROLIFIC CONTRIBUTOR TO MANY PRESTIGIOUS FASHION PUBLICATIONS WORLDWIDE. ALMOST IMMEDIATELY HE HAS BECOME A HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER PHOTOGRAPHER, RESPECTED FOR HIS TALENT AND HIGHLY ARTISTIC CONCEPTUAL WORK.HE HAS DEVELOPED HIS VERY OWN STYLE, A COLLABORATION OF LIGHT AND BEAUTY THAT MAKES HIS IMAGES UNIQUE AND TIMELESS. How would you describe yourself as a photographer? Perctionist, and obsessed with light. I’m always trying to push myself and my concept to go further. Is there a photographer who has been a particular influence for you? I always been inspired by the work of Greg Kadell and still am. Today, I would say that Eugeni Recuenco is my number one reference. How did you discover photograhpy, and how long have you been doing it? I have bought my first camera less than 5 years ago. I just found myself one day in a photo studio environment and it was love at first sight. What do you feel a photo to possess to be successful? I would say on my particular field of fashion, the model, concept/ realization and editing. I always try to have perfect pose, lighting,

editing, but there was something missing. With the experience i’ve gained since i’ve started, i am trying now more to direct a photo to provoke more a feeling first when the project allow me to do it. Are you constantly searching for new models or do they come to you? I am always searching for the face that would inspire me, always. I am working of courses with models agencies that send me often various choice, but i’m really picky now with my choices and the features i’m looking from a model What type of women do you portray? Do they have anything in common? I would say strong, unique/different features, cheekbones, .. i like blue/green eyes most but it’s just my taste let’s say. What to you require of them and how would you, in a few words, describe your ideal model?

MASERATI ICONIC CARS

THE TRIDENT, THE SYMBOL OF A MYTH. THE BADGE USED ON ALL THE RACING CARS IN MASERATI’S HISTORY, WHICH HAS REMAINED CONSTANT THROUGHOUT THE EVOLUTION OF THE BRAND AND ITS STYLE, TECHNOLOGY AND PERFORMANCE, ACCOMPANYING ALL THE VICTORIES AND SUCCESSES OF MASERATI CARS. A SYMBOL THAT ORIGINATED IN MYTH AND HAS SURVIVED PRACTICALLY UNCHANGED DOWN TO THE PRESENT DAY. THESE ARE THE ICONIC CARS THAT HAVE MARKED THE HISTORY OF THE TRIDENT. From the first Maserati Tipo 26 back in 1926, to the modern Maserati range, the Trident has always identified all the Italian brand’s creations. The Maserati Story is the story of a family with daring, courageous, forward-looking ideas. It all started with Rodolfo Maserati, father of seven sons. A railway engineer employed by the Italian monarchy, he was the father of a brood which was to write automotive history. The Maserati brothers were born in 1881, year of arrival of the first-born, Carlo, and 1898, when Ernesto was born. This formed a family with a single passion, for engine design and racing cars. The Maserati 8CM (above) was one of the brand’s first Grand Prix racing cars. It was a particularly powerful car, with a 2,991.4 cubic centimetre straight eight engine capable of delivering 240 horsepower at 5,800 rpm in its most powerful version. This was 20 HP more than the original model; an upgrade achieved by fine-tuning its combustion system and other components. However, its weak point was the chassis,

derived from the slender frame of the Maserati 4CM 1100 and too flexible to manage all the power of the eight cylinder engine, which initially impaired the car’s performance.. Once the War was over, when racing restarted, Maserati decided to raise its 4CL design to new heights. The 4CLT (next page, above) was a single-seater racer developed by Maserati in the late 1940s. An evolution of the Maserati 4CL, the 4CLT won no less than 18 post-war Grands Prix and 5 other races. Some of the merit for this success should go to its tubular frame (from which the T in its name derives), apart from the mechanical changes which increased the car’s power to 260 horsepower, generating a top speed of more or less 270 kilometres an hour. The Maserati 4CL taken to the limit.

1955 JAGUAR D-TYPE

THIS SUPERB EX-WORKS LONG-NOSE D-TYPE JAGUAR IS UNQUESTIONABLY ONE OF THE MOST SIGNIFICANT AND ICONIC HISTORIC COMPETITION CARS EXTANT.RELAXATION. A TRUE ICON OF BRITISH SPORTS CAR RACING. Jaguar’s founding chairman, Sir William Lyons, understood that great styling and success in international racing sold cars. As such, the race to win, above all, was the gruelling 24 Hours of Le Mans. His phenomenal C-Type Jaguars, developed from the road going XK120, won Le Mans outright in 1951 and 1953. Jaguar was then under great pressure to come up with a new car to continue this record of success. The result was soon to become a legend. Late in 1953, Jaguar factory’s test driver, Norman Dewis, managed nearly 180 mph on the Jabbeke Highway in Belgium in a C/D-

Type prototype, auguring well for the subsequent model D-Type’s chances in the seasons ahead. Jaguar built some 67 D-Types between 1955 and 1956. In their final year of production, and despite mixed results in European competition, the factory D-Types finished 1st, 2nd, and 3rd at Reims, where the overall winner, Duncan Hamilton, set a new lap record, after ignoring repeated pit signals that urged him to slow down. This is a true icon of British sports car racing.

OHEKA CASTLE

OHEKA CASTLE IS AN HISTORIC PRIVATELY OWNED MANSION SURROUNDED BY IMPECCABLY MANICURED GROUNDS AND IS THE SECOND LARGEST PRIVATE HOME IN AMERICA. LOCATED IN HUNTINGTON, NEW YORK ON LONG ISLAND’S FAMED GOLD COAST BETWEEN NEW YORK CITY AND THE HAMPTONS. OHEKA CASTLE IS ONE OF THE FINEST HOTELS IN NEW YORK AND IS LISTED ON THE NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES AND A MEMBER OF HISTORIC HOTELS OF AMERICA. Almost a century ago, financier and philanthropist Otto Hermann Kahn built OHEKA CASTLE in the middle of a 443-acre plot on the highest point on Long Island for an estimated cost of $11 million dollars, $110 million dollars in today’s currency. At the time of its construction, the French-style chateau was and today remains, the second-largest private residence ever built in North America. During the Gilded Age of the 1920’s, Kahn used the 109,000 square foot, 127- room estate as a summer home, where he hosted lavish parties and regularly entertained royalty, heads of state, and Hollywood stars. Today, OHEKA CASTLE is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has become the premier venue for exquisite weddings, gala celebrations, romantic weekends, corporate retreats, and has been the backdrop to many photo shoots and music, television, and film productions. After $30 million in restoration - the largest in American History - OHEKA is now 70% restored. The Formal Gardens were refashioned using the original drawings created by the Olmsted Brothers, one of the nation’s

most influential landscape design firms, with careful attention paid to recreating the eight reflecting pools and three fountains. The Olmsted Brothers were the sons of landscape designer Frederick Law Olmsted who designed other notable projects to include the grounds of the White House and United States Capitol and New York’s Central Park. Due to the significance of their work, the brothers played an influential role in creating the National Parks Service. OHEKA remains a symbol within American history and a landmark of Long Island’s Gold Coast. The property radiates old world luxury. Each guest room and suite reflects an individual décor that echoes its European heritage, with many enjoying views of the 23-acre private estate. All 32 guest rooms at OHEKA CASTLE Hotel & Estate feature ultra-comfortable King or Queen size mattresses and are fitted in Frette linens of 100% Egyptian cotton. Bathrooms are expansive and many contain Jacuzzi or soaking tubs with separate showering areas. Each room features plush terry bathrobes, fine cotton bath towels and L’Occitane spa products. High-speed wireless Internet access is also provided.

THE ROMANTIC LOUIS XVI DECOR EVOKES AN ERA OF OPULENCE

THE RITZ LONDON www.theritzlondon.com/

When César Ritz was building his now-iconic hotel in 1906, he wrote his neighbour Lord Wimborne, asking him to sell his house to the hotel. Lord Wimborne replied, “I am thinking of enlarging my garden. How much for the Ritz?” A century later the Ritz purchased the 18th-century mansion, now known as William Kent House. Connected to the hotel on two levels, it adds three magnificent suites and five stunning dining rooms, including one overlooking Green Park. Throughout the rest of the hotel, the Louis XVI decor evokes an era of old-world opulence. The air of luxury is reinforced by the two-to-one staff-to-guest ratio, private members club and casino, chauffeur driven Rolls-Royce service, plus fine dining in the magnificent Restaurant, one of the most

CAPTIVATING, BREATHTAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL, ARCHITECTURALLY INSPIRING - IT’S HARD TO CAPTURE THE ESSENCE OF VENICE IN ONE WORD. PERHAPS THE FIRST AND MOST FITTING DESCRIPTION IS THE EPITOME OF ROMANCE. Built on water,steeped in history and synonymous with romance,Venice is a fabled destination with a glorious past. A city in northeast Italy, it is built atop 118 small islands separated by winding canals and linked by arching bridges. Once a major power in the Mediterranean, it is known today for the beauty of its setting, its architecture and its artworks.The entirecityalongwithitslagoonislistedasaUNESCOWorldHeritage Site. Home to the Piazza San Marco and Saint Mark’s Basilica, it is perhaps the Grand Canal which is the city’s most iconic feature. Meandering in a sinuous s-shape through the heart of Venice, the Grand Canal is the city’s main thoroughfare, plied by gondolas and vaporetti (water buses) and lined with more than 170 gracious buildings between 200 and 700 years old.

Physical reminders of the city’s grand heritage, most were built to demonstrate the wealth and artistry of the Republic of Venice in its heyday. It is in one of these regal old homes directly on the Grand Canal that Aman is housed, fusing the romance and history of this legendary city with the hospitality and service for which Amanresorts is renowned. The palazzo in which Aman Canal Grande Venice is housed, Palazzo Papadopoli, was built in 1550 by the architect and follower of Sansovino, Gian Giacomo de Grigi, as commissioned by the Coccina family. The Coccinas were wealthy traders and seafarers who had recently moved to Venice from Bergamo. The palazzo was sold to the Tiepolo family in 1718 after the death of Francesco Coccina, the last descendant. Avid art collectors, the Tiepolos built an impressive library and gathered treasures.

From all over the world which were viewed by many notable figures of the time.TheTiepolos also employed the painter GiambattistaTiepolo to decorate rooms with frescoes which still remain today. The palazzo changed hands several times between 1837 and 1864 when it was acquired by the Papadopoli family. The brothers Count Nicolo and Angelo Papadopoli moved to Venice from Corfu in Greece, and Nicolo married Maddalena Aldobrandini who came from a wealthy family of intellectuals. The Papadopoli Aldobrandinis bought the palazzo and set about an ambitious renovation. In 1865 they hired architect Girolamo Levi, and entrusted the internal decoration of the piano nobile – the main living area of the palazzo – to Michelangelo Guggenheim. Guggenheim was a leading exponent of the Neo-Renaissance and Rococo styles, and he reinvented the space, turning the palazzo into one of the most significant examples of these styles inVenice.The palazzo was reimagined as the perfect home for entertaining, with access from the side canal for all services and deliveries. It also featured one of the first elevators in Venice, as well as electric powered chandeliers and an internal phone system.The brothers also bought two adjacent buildings which they razed in order to build two gardens – very unusual features in Venice. By 1882, the Papadopoli Brandolinis were entertaining the highest echelons ofVenetian society. At the close of the 19th century,Vera Papadopoli Aldobrandini married Count Giberto Arrivabene with the palazzo as part of her dowry.Today, the palazzo is owned by her grandson, Count Giberto ArrivabeneValenti Gonzaga.

There is also a romantic element to the spring collection with the inclusion of light and sheer linen dresses as well as a flower

print which decorated dresses, skirts and tops in shades of blue, forest green and earthy brown. Structure is added to the feminine showcase with leather belts or tops in camel hues. Once again, Karmen Pedaru and Simon Nessman are connected for a romantic image lensed by Mario Testino in Cabrillo Beach, California with a dreamy spring romance attitude.

Aleksey & Marina is also the author of costumes, accessories, hairstyles for their photos. Marina’s specialty is painting on the tiny negative, which leads to the distinctive end result. “Using brush and applicators solutions of weak acids, dyes and some other reactants are applied on emulsion. Fine abrasives are also applied. The end result is an effect of old invoice-parchment or pencil drawing with a luminous image and flashes etc”. Aleksey uses a Nikon camera with narrow 35mm film. Quite often during shooting he is using such techniques as repeated shooting on one still; zooming during one shot; overlapping of different plots on one still; shooting of moving models on long exposures. About the style,“we started with a fine-art photography painting on a negativ film – but now we remember that time with nostalgia. It was the absolute freedom of creativity, a continuum hurricane. It is now impossible to afford such foolishness - we did not quite belong to ourself. Now we got viewers, fans, customers, and we feel some responsibility to them” “We think that we live in an amazing time of huge opportunity for selfrealization.There is no dogma, no fashion dictates, you can just be themselves. It turned out that in the world there are many wonderful, beautiful people in every sense. We love the modern women. They are free and natural in their choice of a look. ” “Our work is our perception of beauty and erotica, and our philosophy. We are attracted to everything that enhances the reality, proving its conditionality, everything that relates to it and its inconsistency. We work with the model agencies to find out what models are available, determine what accessories, clothes, suits, etc. are required.This task is usually assigned to Marina”.Photography is handled exclusively by Aleksey. Marina is the makeup artist and assists him if it is necessary. . IN

THE NUDE GENRE WE ARE WORKING ON THE EDGE OF EROTISM AND PSYCHOLOGY. AND WE THINK

THAT IS WHY OUR WORK IS ATTRACTIVE. WE BELIEVE THAT NUDITY ITSELF

-

JUST ANATOMIC FORM.

A HUMAN EROTICA IS IN HIS INTELLECT, FEELINGS AND EMOTIONS”, SAID ALEKSEY
