Lavazza and Slow Food invite everyone to stand with them
Another young contributor to the project is the photographer chosen to capture the portraits of the new generation of Earth Defenders, 26 year old Canadian Joey L. In this way, the 2016 Lavazza Calendar “From Father to Son”, produced under the creative direction of Armando Testa, represents the natural evolution of Steve McCurry’s African portraits (in the 2015 Lavazza Calendar) and explores, through the 13 photographs shot by Joey L., the rites and customs of the new generation of Earth Defenders in Central and South America. They are young men and women portrayed with their “fathers,” who every day, drawing on lessons handed down from one generation to the next, defend biodiversity and their plants and crops without wasting resources, for the beneﬁt of the local community.
Lavazza and Slow Food invite everyone to stand with them. One of the ways to do so is to purchase the 2016 Lavazza Calendar, on sale in a limited edition, or to contribute to the Terra Madre Giovani – We Feed the Planet project and to the development of the Slow Food Youth Network by visiting the Calendar2016.lavazza.com website. The hashtag #EarthDefenders has also been created to support the young Earth Defenders on social networks.
