Zeiss Art Calendar
Boy meets girl: This eternal and inexhaustible theme is the topic of the Zeiss Art Calendar. Zeiss, the leading manufacturer of optical systems, invites the very best photographers to take part each year. From Wim Wenders in 2009 to Douglas Kirkland in 2015, the photos are as complex and multifaceted as male-female relationships themselves; the lines between romance, drama, and comedy quickly blur. The people in front of the camera are also tops in their fields – actors like Michael J. Fox or Alec Baldwin meet super-models like Amber Valletta or Toni Garrn. They all make this book a diverse collection of imaginative stories told through pictures. Interviews with the participants further enrich the book with a behind-the-scenes look at the project.
