Corbis Images Calendar
Corbis Images, formerly owned by Bill Gates, was one of the largest photo stock collection websites in the world. Before the company sold off it's images business to Visual China Group (the equivalent of Getty Images in China), Corbis wanted a calendar created for the famous historical figures they represented through their estate holders. These people include Sophia Loren, Martin Luther King Jr., Andy Warhol, Bruce Lee, Buzz Aldrin, Charlie Chaplin, Einstein, John Wayne, Marilyn Monroe, Muhammed Ali, Steve McQueen, Thomas Edison and Marvin Gaye.
This calendar is composed of images that are only found on the Corbis website. I researched each person in order to find images that would create a deeper sense of storytelling, and prodive a glimpse into the rich lives of each person. The calendar was given out to every estate holder representing that historical figure as a way of showing gratitude for their relationship with Corbis Images.
