Cher, Rita Ora, Grimes, Iggy Pop – these are just some of the stars that we will see in the next edition of the Pirelli calendar. This year’s photos will be taken by Bryan Adams, a Canadian musician who is also an active photographer. The 48th edition of the famous publishing house was entitled “On The Road”.
The Pirelli calendar returns after a hiatus of one year. Due to the Covid-19 epidemic, the calendar for 2021 was missing. The money collected for its creation was then allocated to the fight against the coronavirus.

The calendar edition for 2022 will include photos of one of the most popular Canadian singers – Bryan Adams. The release was called “On The Road”. As the Canadian explained in the press release, the title of the session alludes to what his life was like for the last 45 years as he toured the world.
Some of the photos were taken during a two-day photo session in Los Angeles in June. Part of Adams was done on the Italian island of Capri in late July.
In the photos we will see Cher, Grimes, Iggy Pop, Jennifer Hudson, Rita Ora, St. Vincent or rapper Saweetie.
The final version of next year’s edition of the calendar will be presented in November.
Pirelli Calendar – an exclusive gift
The Pirelli Calendar has been published since 1964. There are artistic photos of famous actresses and singers. Initially, it was Pirelli’s corporate calendar, later changed the formula to become an annual project, today with an almost cult dimension. Each edition is created by a different photographer.
The most beautiful women in the world have appeared in the over 50-year history of the calendar, incl. actresses Julianne Moore, Penelope Cruz and Sophia Loren; and models Naomi Campbell, Gisele Buendchen and Cindy Crawford. There were also Polish women: Anja Rubik, Magdalena Frąckowiak and Małgosia Bela.
The calendar is exclusive: it cannot be purchased. There are only a dozen or so thousand copies in the world, of which approx. 150 in Poland. It is a tradition that the first copy is always handed over to Queen Elizabeth II.
