Sneak Peek at Terry Richardson For Pirelli (NSFW)

Word leaked a few months ago that Terry Richardson is the fashion photographer who’ll have the honor of shooting Pirelli’s calendar for 2010. Now comes news that Richardson has set up shop in Trancoso, Bahia, Brazil, and is snapping mannequins that include Ana Beatriz Barros, Gracie Carvalho, Georgina Stojiljkovic and (maybe) Catherine McNeil. The much-anticipated almanac, which debuted in 1964, isn’t available for purchase; rather it’s gifted to a minute group of tastemakers and Pirelli clients of choice. But, given the fact that the calendar continually showcases top talents—past photogs range from Richard Avedon and Herb Ritts, to Inez and Vinoodh and Mert and Marcus, while mannequins have included everyone from Naomi, Gisele and Kate to Sophia Loren—Pirelli’s calendars are as feverishly coveted as high-end art tomes or exhibition catalogs. (NSFW image after jump.)

Fashionologie found a leak of Richardson at work in Brazil, courtesy of Brazilian blog Glamurama, which includes a model that may be Catherine McNeil going barebacked on a white horse (an image that calls to mind a Walter Chin photograph of Gisele from a few years back). From the looks of it, expect a lot of nude models (nothing new for Richardson) provocatively posed in a pastoral setting.
